Growth Comparisons:

Couple notes...
  • the best grower has been in the highest light and is a very active eater.
  • I need to epoxy around the favia's skeleton and remove the tube worms so it can droop it's flesh down to the base.
  • The chalice has been fairly slow growing, but I will note that the past month it's been extending a single feeder tentacle at each mouth whereas it's never done this behavior before (no tentacles). So I expect the chalice to start growing faster now that it can capture food more effectively.
  • I think both favias are the same species... (or they are goniastrea).
Overall very happy with the general recovery of all the corals, you can see exposed skeleton and algae in the original pictures, which is gone now and they are all growing.

Just tested Alkalinity:

8.5~9 dKH


Also just dosed 30 gal dose of Fluconazole in the Display since I am seeing some hair algae start to come back.
I removed the PhosGuard from the Sump and turned off the skimmer air pump.

Some interesting pictures taken under actinic lights (450nm), but I did a white balance adjustment:

actual appearance to my eyes:

The weirdest thing to me is the pop in the background candy cane coral in the back. I can hardly see it in the blue photo, but it pops in the white balance adjusted one.
