Very nice

I'm half considering allowing my GSP to grow all across my back tank wall. Not sure if I want to allow it to run that rampant tho.

Very nice, yes they do grow like crazy. When I first added mine they were just about the size a half dollar. In just about 6 weeks they are now about the size a baseball.

A word of cation, they il will smother other corals and take over tanks, make sure to place them where you will be able to keep them under control.

I started with a quarter size frag and now have several very large rocks covered in it. This stuff grows like crazy like said above.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

I agree. But on a good note its easy to peel off of glass. It is pretty, but it seems to be a hot coral as it can overtake many other encrusting species. I let it grow onto golf ball sized rocks and sell them to the LFS for $25 a piece.

Not trying to jack this thread but I've had a frag of GSP for a few months and it hasn't gotten bigger at all. But my SPS/LPS and zoas are growing just fine? Weird

Interesting, well I am in the process of starting to dose my tank so maybe I'll start seeing better results soon
