Seasons Greetings Monti. Worst decision yet, it covers everything. Having to frag sticks so they dont get consumed. Theres a few under that cap! Gonna just pull this whole rock once Im done saving what other coral i can

I have to be the luckiest person in the hobby because my fastest grower is my RRC Rainbow Splice. First pic is when I got it in late February, Second is mid April and the last picture was taken 1 week ago.

Man I wish I never seen this lol Just got my first stick a 2-3 weeks ago and its already encrusting and popping new heads. The bad part is this is truly the stick I want and a cut is way to easily attainable haha! Dang. Very nice

This question hurts me to the core, I have nothing to talk about since my tank is new. BUT, I do have new buds on several zoas and my daughter has grown several inches this year. Other than that I would need a micrometer to measure growth.
Let's revisit this question this time next year...please!
If only my corals could grow as fast as my teenagers!!!!

Other than clove polyps.... my fastest growing right now is a birdsnest, and that's still barely nothing

For me, it's my Blastomussa Wellsi 'Alien Eye', or Pineapple Coral if there's anyone who calls them by their common name. Mine is growing faster than my Green Star Polyps, every tank is different.

Though, I bought my tank from another reefer who'd only been running it for a year and a bit, and parameters were all out of wack (and still are slightly, bringing them in check slowly of course). Everything is thriving though, including green hair algae annoyingly. Funnily enough when I first found the Blasto it was sitting under a layer of sand, and had been at least since I first saw the tank. Resilient coral!

Everything you see is a year old or less. That pink Capricorn has eaten 4 hermits. They are locked away within it's skeleton. One day a Hermit decides to rest and the next day lodged in because of the growth. I can watch this tank grow by the day.

Nothing like seeing your coral healthy and growing! Certain coral may not do so well in your reef tank but then there is the coral that does VERY well for you! Let's talk about that today!

What's the fastest growing coral you have? Tell us the type and tell us the common name if it has one!

Toxic green dura, started as a 2 inch frag probably 10 years ago.
