Any trick to get that bright color back on Spicy Lemon Favia? It’s brownish now....I have it on sandbed with around 100 par, low/medium flow.
How often do you feed them?

Bring it up a bit off sandbed. They respond well under higher blue lighting and moderate flow. I feed 2-3X per week- Direct feed and also try adding Brightwell Koral color which seems to enhance coloration as well as amino acid, Iodine and potassium.

We have ours off to the side but a bit higher up in light. Just took this photo last night!

Thanks for the reply but that's a Jason Fox coral, I'm curious as to the Legendary Corals name on this piece, its a picture from them.
We've been selling this piece as FX Yellow Brick Road, but it's very similar if not the same to JF Gold Rush. It grows incredibly slow for us.
