    Hey guys I thought I would start a showoff thread for Acropora Spathulata as you don't see much of it posted around.

    I have a nice colony of it growing and keen to see what other people have. I will start it off with mine below. 20170620_203832-1.jpg

    They have the potential to be very nice when they get settled I noticed mine changed colour a lot from when I first got it.

    It's in the top left. It Used to be an excellent multi color but went green on me when I had a nutrient issue. Now that's solved its gaining color. 20170621_205446.jpg That picture is a couple weeks old. It's starting to have a little pink peek through. I'll try and capture that tomorrow with a picture.

    Hopefully the pink continues to come back as it will be a nice piece when it does

    I understand these to be some of the most difficult to keep acros in the hobby. What’s everyone’s trick for long term success?

    I keep hearing "pristine water" "extremely clean tanks"
    I just added this colony over the weekend, ill check back every so often with updates on it and see how it goes
    currently my tank info is: p04=.02-.03, N03= undetectable, ALK=8.9 - 9.1, CAL=423-430, MAG 1400

    Absolute stability. They can start to RTN or STN when lots of other SPS are fine with some swings. If you see a tank with a huge colony of Spath, then you know that they did not hardly have any parameter swings for years and years. I also find that they need more light than most other acros - high intensity and wide spectrum.
