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 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. :)

Think this is sr's photo of the mightmax. Looks like a rainbow chalice except its a favia
Mighty Max is one of our favorite favias! It's like you said, it's the colors of a rainbow chalice on a favia.
