So I was under the impression that Montipora liked high par but apparently.

I believe by increasing my white from 10 to 20% I believed I cooked my Montis….

So I moved them to a frag rack all the way at the bottom… now sure what else to do. Other then that I haven’t changed much.

Not sure what else to do. From previous experience when the montis start looking like this is mostly from light…

In my experience, montis are all over the place when it comes to PAR requirements. I have some that do great in 200-300 PAR, others can't handle 200 PAR.

My rainbow monti that's around 150-200ish PAR that faded a bit, but the color is coming back really great! It just needed to adjust for some time. It has a super bright purple growth edge in the highest light currently.
