Yeah, I wasn't saying it looked brown, just that it will brown if it doesn't get enough light.
It looks good! Congrats, that's the fast growing SPS, you wanted!

If you bump it hard or hit the edge, it will release a little slime. Probably a defense mechanism, but it recovers quickly.
When one of mine was over-topping my Chalice, I could actually see daily growth out of it!!

Check out the borders of monti caps. White edges indicate spreading and growth. If it's completely brown then there's an issue. Too much\little light. Too much\little flow etc.
