    My Sympodium frag is starting to open so I thought I would take a pic before it changed its mind. For perspective the frag plug is 7/8" in diameter.

    Does this frag show any blue?

    I am really interested in seeing what this frag does, growth wise.

    Where did you place it in the tank light wise?

    TIA

    The base is blue, especially around the edges which is a deep blue. The polyps are blue on the stalks and there is blue in the center of the polyps in both case it is a vibrant blue. The fronds are green on the inside and brown on the outside and frills.

    The frag is 12 inches under the water line and is oriented almost vertical.

    I'm with you on its growth.

    I have a frag about the same size at the bottom of my tank about 18" down under 175 mh.Only about half of my frag seems to open all the way and the rest half way open.What lighting are you keeping it under?

    mine is about 12 inches down under a 6 bulb T5. i would categorize the waterflow as moderate. i have had it for a couple of months and it has multiplied by roughly 15% in that time and spread to another rock.
