Torch Coral Help

I noticed alot of peoples torch corals are short and stumpy. Mine is huge with super long tentacles. am I doing something wrong? Maybe more light? Excuse the lighting. I had the blues on. Help.

Thought it might be stretching for more light. Most of my friends Torches tentacles are short and thick.

That may have to do with flow too....not just lighting. I think yours looks just fine.

So more flow? It's crazy cause in the morning it's very very short. I almost think it's dead in it's skeleton. After 2 hours of light, it is HUGE! Which made me think it's trying to reach for more light. Then it splits so fast I have to keep fragging it so i guess it's happy. .

It looks very happy to me. As mentioned, flow probably has more to do with polyp extension than lighting.

That's actually a magnificently beautiful animal. I was not expecting that based off the title of the thread.

Based off how it looks "droopy" I personally would add more flow to the mix. But it's absolutely thriving and healthy.
