    It looks like it's coming along nicely. I have a brain freeze monti that looks just like it, and I love it! And from one day to the next, it just took off. In my experience, they take a while to acclimate even when everything is perfect. But yours looks like it's coming along fine. I have a beach bum thats about three months old, and although I know it's in a good spot, there's not much growth...but it slowly encrusting. I'm going to give it a little more time, and if it doesn't start growing, I'm going to move it up a little. I've had a juggernaut for about 7 months, and for the first 5 there was no noticeable growth. Then 2 months ago, I moved it up, and all of the sudden...boom! Crazy! This has also happened to me with several pieces...both, with acros and montis. About a month ago, I got a homewrecker, and It's doing fan-freaken-tastic right where I put it. With all that being said, I have a 14,000k full spectrum led setup, and I've been doing water changes about every 10 days...give or take, with coral pro salt, using ro/di water from my aqua fx mako, and so far there's nothing I can't seem grow. And best of all, I don't need to dose at all. For me, my only obstacle was figuring out what lighting the piece is going to like, and where on my tank would suit it. I'm no pro, and my tank is relatively new ( a little ove a year old), but I have zero complaints, or issues, and there's nothing I can't seem to grow. Here's a pic of my little slice of heaven...

    Bump, bump, bump! Show us some more Montipora!

    Would love to see some images of different Montipora growth forms growing in close proximity.

    Wife and I were drawn to this and the price was right. Testing with sps to see if my system can sustain these. Unknown to me, if someone wants to throw out the name I'd greatly appreciate it. [​IMG]
