Sps coral

My acro frags seem to all grow out about the same way. They first get a footing established, then grow out at the top. Sometimes the base will grow out over the plug and sprout a new colony even before the main colony sorts itself out and grows. And some acros need a surprisingly small amount of PAR, while others that can look similar needs loads of PAR. The PAR amount associated with the intensity of the flow patterns changes the size and shape of the acros . Just my observations.

Oh I am still learning thanks for the info. What type of sps should I look for to see if these lights have enough to get the job done.
