Info on torch frag?

I've had em' for about 2 months now and he doesn't look sick or anything, but he's not getting any bigger. How do I encourage growth for him? My tank is a 90g with 4 48" t 5. I tried moving him around but no change. Any advice would be appreciated!

A lot of hard corals tend to "hibernate" the first month or two when you add it to your tank I've found. Once it settles it it should start growing fairly quick. Like dino said just be patient

Just make sure to check your calcium and magnesium levels and keep up on water changes. It will start growing once it settles in
