Any fast growing SPS/LPS that will thrive high up in my tank close to the 150 metal halide?
birdsnest for one
I'll have to check that one out at Midwest if they have it!
Purple tip acros grow pretty good and would do great under your light.
r the other colors any different? I know there are diff ones all look sweet though thanks
The green slimers are slower growing.But the other grow fairly quick as far as SPS goes.
Plating montis would be another good choice.
ok I know this is a hard question to answer but what kind of growth do you see from them? Like a month just a general guess
my purple tip tubs birdsnest doubled its size in a month.
If your use to soft coral growth than SPS will seem like they grow at glacial pace in comparison.IMO,the plating montiporas seem to grow the fastest.I have a monti that has grown 6x in the past six months.I had several acropora(pink milli)that have grown 4x in the past six months.Both dwarf the Xenia that has grown 100x the past six months.
SPS are slooooow, but like others have said, the fastest I have are birdsnest and montis.
Alright I'll look at those next time I go to Midwest, either this weekend or the next
i am reading everything you all are saying but the corals that people say grow the fastest grow slow in my tank. my green sar grows slow but my red milli and starynight grow pretty fast
Thats just part of the hobby Sagent.Every tank is totally different.What grows great in one persons tank may die in another and vise versy.
I got one little spot of GSP that not grown at all in a year,but I also got some SPS that have grown like weeds while other not so good.
Post a pic of that starynight.I've never heard of that one.
the bottom left is the starynight (thats what the guy told me when i bought it) and i think the top right is a tubarina
