Still working on flow but I find it strange it’s growing at the tip and base like it is.. wasn’t the best frag but I wanted a sps test piece and it was all my LFS had in their cheap’o sectionI'm no acro pro, but I was told more flow encourages the type of growth you want. Please tag me if you find out it's not true. I'm curious.
I would leave it, it is well based out and throwing branches, was the long bit damaged at the tip when you got it?Need some advice from the acro pro’s out there.. this thing has had some great growth at the base and is now starting to take off at the very tip but nothing in the middle. I’m thinking maybe I should cut the top off?
No damage to the tip.. The base has encrusted surrounding rock and has little branches popping up all over, I was thinking maybe if I cut the main branch off it would develop better form? Also the very top looks like it would make a nice little frag probably take your advice and let it go for now, hate to stagger growth or trigger a possible RTN event.I would leave it, it is well based out and throwing branches, was the long bit damaged at the tip when you got it?
It has used it's energy making itself safe, basing out, watch this puppy go!
That would make sense and one reason I’m questioning the growth of that particular piece.. it’s doing both, aggressively encrusting base along with skinny strait growth at tip.My son has a few sps in higher flow areas and they get thick first and then branch out. Makes sense they are trying to cover more area to secure themselves. His lower flow sps are taller and skinny.
It’s Xmas in AugustLook, I admittedly have a thing for colored Christmas lights. That just trumped them!!!
Honestly wasn’t expecting much from this gorgi and still not sure how it will do long term but so far it seems very happy, healthy and appears to be attaching to rock.Great picture the Gorgonian looks fantastic
