Looks good. If it is unhappy, it will shrink up (might do it at night, so don't panic) and it it's really unhappy it will recede back enough to expose the skeleton. When my lights go off, if it is resting and not feeding there will be a little shrinking. Also, those little bumps will disappear. I have 4 Lobos, one of which started going south on me. What I described above is what I saw. I moved towards the back in a more shaded area and after about 2 months it has started to come back. I have noticed on my 3 that are doing well that I have seen significant growth. Just make sure you are religious with your pwc
's and stay on top of your chemistry. But that is the strategy for most coral.
