What par are you guys feeding it? Mine is at 350, lost color since I got it, came from a tank with very high light.

Got it august 8th

Currently mine is in 225-250 max. I had a colony in 450+ but I lost it. What’s happening to yours is normal, leave it be and hopefully the colors return. Sometimes they go green after being cut, and stay green for a while. When all you can think about is “the pinks in a HW”, it’s called HW syndrome. Really!

It took a little while to settle in but it’s looking good now

do you attribute the high par to why you lost it? I had my colony around 400 before I lost it. The new one is around 600 par and seems to love it.

I honestly believe it was high par for too long during the day.

My new frag has much better health and coloration down in lower par.
