I have one sps and it's a monti frag. I wanted to see if I could even care for it and it was 5$. It has grown. I use instant ocean salt. Not reef crystals though. That will be what I use next.

What sort of montipora is it and what lighting do you use?

As long as you have good lights, non detectable PO4 and NO3 and good alk mag and cal then you should be able to grow any SPS.

I don't get the fact that everybody says they are hard?

I started my latest tank with SPS frags straight after the cycle as a bit of an experiment, kept the parameters in check and I have noticed growth in the first month without any loss of colour.

I don't know what it's called but here's a before after pic. The colors were fading because there was too much light on it but now it's moved and doing a lot better.

I don't know what that is to be honest, maybe a piece of a montipora capricornis?

Coral frags are clippings from larger corals and yes they do grow but on another note welcome to AA
