    Hey guys!
    I don't know if this is the right place for this post. If not, I'm sorry.
    I can't seem to identify a very small frag that was on my live rock, inside a small crevice. I decided to glue in and positioning him on a better place. He seems to be growing and happy, but I would like to know what it is.

    Any ideas?
    Thanks

    Could it be brownish from the lack of anything?

    @paulojbsilva its browned because of the lack of light .. or perhaps you put it too high up when you found it

    Thanks drama1993...I wasn't planning on keeping sps so this light would be enough for now. Maybe I'll have to think of a new one. Thanks guys

    I'm running some Chinese leds, Chihiros. They where very cheap, and where only intended for the cycle period and some softies. Although they are 120w I can't control color channels or the mix of whites and blues...
    Thinking about an Evergrow IT5060 now...

    Well my tank is assembled for almost a year, but I've had some problems only fixed about a month and a half ago. So I don't have many corals...
    I have a calaustrea looking really great. But some zoas that look ok , too...

    From what I can tell in the video, it actually looks pretty healthy(aside from coloration). Polyps are out and I see some flow, just give it time and see if t colors up

    This is the look of the calaustrea...it is in fact dividing pretty fast. I'm trying to balance low alk in the Seachem salt. But I do now Chihiros is not a very good light fixture.

    Ahhh that could be it, balancing out the Alk. Once the alk is balanced out then the corals start eating up the Ca, Mg, and elements;) The rock looks good with color.

    That has been a problem with this Seachem salt...seems that alk can't keep up. Using backing soda to rise it slowly at night
