Hi. All this is my first monti. Was wondering if the fact that all the edges are white is good or bad? Had in the tank for about 3 weeks.
Water parameters are

mag 1600
Cal 440
KH 7.5
Salinity 1.026
Phosphate.02
Trite 0
Trate 10
Amonia 0
PH 8

Its normal, here’s mine after 1 year. Also, it used to be bigger but a few months ago, a Porites rock that was not glued down stumbled a broke a huge chunk of the monti. But yeah, the paler edges are quite common. Just make sure you give it ALOT of flow and keep your tank params (nutrient level, ph level, temperature etc) stable.
