just make sure your calcium, magnesium levels are at the right levels. Also some say that phosphates and nitrates hender the growth.

One day your tank will be completely covered by coraline algae. You will then notice it start to die off and bleach out. At this point, you will start to understand the water chemistry of calcium/alkalinity/magnesium better.

Other times, the coraline will plate so fast that it chokes your corals (e.g., zoas) and kill them off. Boy aren't these the good times.
