For coraline growth, you need
1) light (not necessarily reef lighting either, but more than standard lighting)
2) Ca and ALK in balance close to NSW levels
3) some coraline to seed the tank

I'm getting a lot of coraline on my filter intake pipe, my powerheads and spots all over the back of the glass.


Ca and ALK in balance close to NSW levels

Is it safe to say the water quality is pretty good for this to be hapenning?

I'm scraping coraline off my front glass regularly now. The rock from Zack and Mike at Liverocks was full of it.

How much scraping do you want?

I have some now, not enough that'll make a difference in a 40 though... Mine's growing fast maybe soon I can help you out.

When using a 40w normal fluo. light I found that the green grew much better than anything else. I had spotting in just a couple months. My purple,pink and orange wasn't doing nearly as well. I found a few spots, but they were few and far between, and actually appeared to be dying off. My 1 pink/orange rock has been losing a lot of color since I got it. I assume it was not getting enough light even though its placed on the top of my tank. I've recently upgraded and am hoping (seriously hoping) that the purple and pink make a dramatic comeback.
