Comparison from first measurement after mounting frag in October:
Although you can see some vertical growth has happened in the original three branches, the majority of growth has been in a new branch that is growing right at the camera in my official entry photos. It is blocking the view of the original left-most branch and I've decided I'm going to start including side shots to show the growth better.....
Last month (arrow indicates new branch):
Ca - 460 (I guess I mixed my current batch of 2-part calcium more concentrated than usual and my calcium has crept up since then...I'm adjusting pump timer to bring it back down again)
Alk - 8.3
Mg - 1400 10 days ago (this rarely fluctuates with my water change schedule so I don't test too often).
I'll slip a FTS in the discussion thread....
almost forgot, Dec 31 update: mine appears to have stalled, but is getting slightly more growth around the base. Compared to others, Im way behind. New tank build is in progress, so maybe it will do better there when I get things moved over in the next month.
