    That piece takes time to grow. You have it in the same position that we have ours. With frequent feedings it should start to take off. We noticed that when it reaches around 2" all around it will start to grow faster.

    I keep my favias at low flow, med-low light. They don't tolerate much nitrate and only thrive in my tank if I feed (reefroids/mysis)

    I have always loved favias. If only there was more room in a 40g for them. They love to sweep and some of my other corals in there actually dominate the favias unfortunately. I love mazes (platys) too. Just got a bunch on the Cherry Coral sale. :)

    By the way, all the corals in these pics are beautiful. My collection is not that extensive yet.

    Wonderful photos, favias are one of my favorites. This is the only one I have right now. It's constantly falling over but doesn't seem to mind too much.

    Mighty Max is one of our favorite favias! It's like you said, it's the colors of a rainbow chalice on a favia.

    wow what a beautiful colony you have there. Mines just a frag but its actually growing very well. Think this is a graft? Maybe not right?
