New SPS growth under CF!

Check out the growth of my SPS frag under 9.6 WPG of CF in a month and a half time!

Just after I got it....


Now.....check out all the pink tips...atleast 1/4 inch of growth on some....mind you the frag is only 2 inches tall!


Obviously this is one of the species that does well under CF, per the intensity is strong enough!

What is the coral on the left? It looks like it may encroach on the Acropora.

My recollection is that (some species of) Acros are one of the few sps that do ok under CF lights. Nice growth on yours!

I know nothing about SPS corals, so would you consider that amount of growth in a month or two to be pretty good?

BTW, I dose with kent nano reef.....It has a part a and b.......I have been using it for a while, and have good coralline growth, my clam is opening huge, and my acro is growing good!

The true colors of some acros can't be seen without stronger lights, IMO. Glad it it working for you.
