Heres my piece.First pic is now and the pic on the right is when got it in Oct 2019. So been about a year. Not the fastest grower in my system and super hard to color up. Blasting with around 400 - 450 par.

On my frag, it's either PAR or spectrum that's bringing out the pink. I had the frag mounted on a rock where it was tilting forward a little. The front is completely green due to indirect lighting. But the back which is getting a direct hit from the lights is starting to get the pinks. Here's pics.

This is the front:

This is the backside:

Also, since this is a growth progress thread, the encrusted part has grown in just 5 weeks. Looks like it'll be a fast grower.

I'll play, but I will likely forget to update. One of my frags... one month under 14k Phoenix Halide... not much growth, but the color is coming.

I wouldn’t worry @jda
I’m sure someone will remind you

I thought you used radiums? Different tank?
Edit
Nevermind. Your build thread states Phoenix.

Yes, I have SE Radiums on the 16" LumenMax reflectors and m80 ballasts on a different tank. This tank and both of my frag tanks have the DE 14k Phoenix. If you are thinking about buying a Halide for your tank, either would be good choices... just get the correct ballasts. :)
