most of the montipora family can do well under PC. lots of flow. keep them high in the tank and keep calcium levels up. you seem to be doing just fine. keep it up

The growth is great for only a month.
Keep on dosing. As the corals grow, they consume calcium, carbonates, strontium, molybdenum and all sorts of other things. To replenish all of these through water changes, you would have to replace 5% or so daily. Can corals grow without supplementation? Yes. Will there be some species that will not be able to compete with others? Yes. Can this be detrimental to delicate corals like SPS? Yes. Dose and monitor frequently. Your coral growth will continue to be great.

I still want to know what coral that is just off the side of that Acro...

Sorry that coral is a Corky Finger Encrusting Gorgonian!



It is difficult to keep corals seperated in a 10 gal nano!....everything else can colide and fight for space but I want the Purple Tricolor Acro (A. Vaughani) to keep stay out of reach and grow to the top of the water!

I beleive I have the species identified right, The pics shows most of the colors, purlpe tips and a light brown stalk, but what you cant see in the pic is the metallic greenish tinge you see when you look at it, you cant see that in the photos!

As long as it is not a Paraerythropodium sp.! Those are highly aggressive encroaching critters!

The acro is beautiful.
