Here’s the hell troll conundrum, this thing colors up best in lower light, like outside edge of the tank lower light, at least for me.

can and will grow like crazy under high but color may suffer. You just gotta find that happy medium and you’ll be golden.
We talking golden?

Frag was moved up with the growers and showers from BC

0.1P
20N
450 calcium
8.5 Alk
1500+ Mag

I dose all for reef, kalkwasser in ATO. Nothing fancy.

Recently just added 2x more lights radion gen 4 pros and dropped lights down 10 inches. Before was on 300 par tops. Now idk but has to be higher.

Today got a used MP60 running. Added to gyres. Pushing more water around the tank :)

I also run a full display fuge with extras in the sump. Also cats fish the display fuge.

Newly want to test PH.

Well mine is growing like a weed in high par so once again you are spot on with all things acropora.

Is that your fuge with the macroalgae and normal light pic? That's a crazy good looking fuge if so! Do you run any standard sump equipment? I see the skimmer under the tank in actinic light, but not sure how it's all piped together. The fishing cats are a great touch.

Yes it is! :) Ty


I have a UV plumed, heaters, skimmer. ATO all on the other side. Here's my "fire hazard" I'm not the best with cable management. But it's all off the ground and in the other room.

I use filter cups and socks.

Toss cuttings into the fuge section of the sump.

I also use a socthng oxydator. With my tank being in a basement. I feel like CO2 is high. Never tested. But want to this year.

As long as it’s still living you can be in if you want. If you want to be out, that’s fine too
Then count me back in! I figured disqualification. seems like a good strategy to frag it up and let them grow together ? :)

March submission…. I’m very happy to say that all the color has returned! Not seeing much growth at all. If I squint I think it’s starting to encrust over the glue but just barely.
