What are your slowest growing corals or ones that don't grow

So I've noticed in my tank shrooms and monti caps just don't like it. I've had 2 shrooms since I started and in a little under 2 years they've only become 5. Monti caps just don't make it. Everything else does wonderfully. Anyone else have some corals that just don't like their tank?

Mushrooms don't grow in my tank, too much light. Also a blue ribbon grogonian, just a really slow one

I don't have a problem with mushrooms, but ricordea's just don't do well for some reason.
But, when it comes to slowest grower, my Montipora Setosa is the slowest grower in my tank.

Yeah I have issues with ricordea too, just all shroom like corals lol. It's so weird how some corals love certain tanks and just will not grow in others systems

My chalice frag is the same size as when I bought it a year ago, it just doesn't grow. Other than that I've found favia the slowest, I've tried twice with favia and neither grew.

Pectinia or any open large polyp like brain coral. As I run my system now to try to favor my SPS, many of my soft corals are fading.
