Hey fellow acroheads.

I thought I'd start a thread to document my acropora growth over the next 12 months. I plan on doing weekly acro growth shots and stitching them into a time lapse gif. I will update this thread every Sunday with new growth time lapses!

We're about 5 weeks into 2021, and here's the growth so far:


How long did that take to record? What type of camera did you use? What do you do at night - do you turn off your camera?

I just take weekly photos and stitch them together into a gif! The hardest part is getting the camera into the same position every week.

It’s moments like this when living in a state that has legalized marijuana pays off... trippy. LOL

Have you noticed better growth with the reefi leds?
I can definitely say that growth has been at least the same as it was compared to when I used a MH+T5 fixture. I am hesitant to say that it is faster/better as I don't have a control/comparison tank running.

This is my new favorite thread!!! I wish the 3 sps I have in my tank would grow like that! or grow in general! I have had a little growth, but nothing like that ! keep them coming!
Give them time to settle in (can take quite a while). Once they do, they'll probably take off.

Looks like it’s done nothing in 14 weeks.
