    Yep it is all in the lighting and flow. I really hoped it would table out, but I will keep trying. ;D

    Nice growth, give it time it will start tabling when it has enough vertical growth.

    Well it is Friday and that means new growth shot. Moved the coral up in the tank about 2 inches. Honestly I do not know if the growth rate will remain the same. I am also currently tracking the grow of another acro that was a bright lime green, but the new tip growth is purple. I really wanted it to maintain the green. Still trying to figure out how to influence color change with regard to lighting and water chemistry, would love a zoevit system. :)

    Looks extremely good, I can't wait to start trying SPS. I'm gonna start doing video updates and asking questions on my tank thread so don't forget to subscribe Corailline!

    How big was it three months back? How can I tell where it has grown?
