    Awesome!

    It should begin to take off vertically very shortly now that it has set a base.

    not only set a base, but grown down it, and onto the rock! haha! It does get rotated about once a month lately. So the side with the nips on the edge was facing the backside of where the flow was leaving the frag flug. So my assumption is it was going to branch off towards the direction of flow. Flow was pushing from one side more than the other. Now that the flow is more erratic, it will be fun to see what starts to happen!!

    It's already awesome to see where it is today compared to where it started.

    Well, it's been a while, time for another update. I now know why this is called the "forrest fire Digitata" one night, I was spot feeding and it something brushed the coral and the polyps retracted. Then it was like a light bulb went off. The green base, the red polyps coming back out made it look like a spreading forest fire. So cool!

    Thanks! That's what is so cool to me! Expecting it to start on the top with the branching, but nope, he's going downtown!

    Looks great zesty. That's a nice little coral collage you've got going.

    Looking for less light, Matt. You'll get a deeper color and better growth a bit lower down. Tank is looking good!
