I have a kessil ap700. Everything is slow to grow. lol. In my main tank.

In my other tanks my Xenia’s grow extremely well, Tonga torches, and shrooms, star polyps.

Hands down fastest is the Xenia’s.

Are you blaming the Kessils? I’m sure that’s not it. But I agree, all of those corals take off in my tank.

Fastest is hard to say between the GSP and xenia... Probably GSP for me though.

Slowest for me was a small colony of zoas until they disappeared real recently (I think my rabbitfish had something to do with that). In a year and half they went from 3 polyp to 4. :p Other zoas have good growth though; not sure why this one didn't take off.

Zoas are weird for me. They either stayed the same or spread wildly. I’ve even had zoas buried in sand for more than a month and still come back to life

Do chalices grow at all? They just seem to sit like buckets.
Fastest: Hollywood stunner chalice. I need to dig up a pic of the thing before I started fragging it monthly. 1" growth all around it per month. I was giving it away at reef club meets, all the local LFS's were stocked and would not take it anymore. It now gets broken off monthly and fed to my sons puffer fish. Keeps the teeth filed down, and they love it lol.

Slowest: no name acro frag I have had for 4 years. It has PE, has encrusted, but about the same size as when it was placed. All other acros are doing great and growing like weeds.

I have a chalice that is a Sprung's Stunner that was fragged recently. I can almost see new growth everyday. My current slowest grower is an utter chaos paly that just won't grow no matter where I place it.
