They get bigger. No buy really, most Sps will have white or beige edges where growth is taking place.

Try red sea's new reef stuff you will not have to ask if your reef is growing. You will see it growing. Especially in the accelerated growth staged.

Depends on what kind of sps, are you using ro/di, dosing the tank, etc etc. I can only give you my experience(I dose and use ro h2o), but I have some montipora and birdsnest right now and have seen significant growth in the two months I have had them. I was out of town since Sunday and came back lastnight and could tell that my birdsnest had grown. It depends though.
