How's it look to you ?

Just wanted to know if my coral looked healthy? They haven't been growing any just looking the same every day. The pics are below, I know the GSP is suppose to spread, but I'm not sure about growth pattern of torch coral. Thanks for opinions.

Both look decently healthy. The gsp looks like it is spreading some too. The other looks ok, but there isnt much extension. What lights are you using? Also, it might not be a torch. Could i get a closer pic?

GSP looks good, as Gboy said there isn't much extension on the torch, how long have you had them?

It is actually frogspawn, my bad. And here is a pic of my crappy light source. And I bought a new power head to increase flow, it seems to help

You have a seemingly complicated issue with a simple solution. I see this with a lot of LPS owners. You simply lack the wattage, but more importantly, you lack the blue spectrum. Flow can be minimal and the animal will still be happy.

My frogspawn rarely came out until I added more blue... I since have started using an ATI blue + t5ho to supplement my LEDs and what a difrence. Check it out.

+1 many lps are found deep where blue is the most depth penetrating spectrum.
