Happy Friday! :)

Today we unveil a new BRStv Investigates test!

We're experimenting on how differing degrees of flow in the DT will affect coral growth and if we change those to flow rates to the extreme, will the effect be even more pronounced?

I have conducted some flow test myself before. Not on this scale however. I would say the lower flow tanks will have taller growth. The tanks with higher flow will have shorter, thicker branches, and twice the base as the others. Resulting in a much heavier specimen.
