That is amazing growth to say the least. You must be feeding illegal steroids.

You really love what your doing and it shows!  Keep up the good work, and keep showing us all.

I'm just amazed how well yours grow.

I've lost several acros, especially when I started out.  However, all is good within the last 6-8 months.

Very nice growth! I'm new to this hobby and seeing pictures like this give me hope that my corals will look great in the near future!

Wow! What type of lighting do you have? That is some amazing growth!  It's a good idea to keep pictures so that you can see how much they've changed over time!

Thanks guys (and gals )!

Troyholl, Welcome to the club!  We have many experienced and generous aquarists here that will help you out.  I highly recommend browsing this board frequently and going see members' tanks to learn and make informed decisions regarding your tank, fish, and corals.

Kgwilliams, I have 3 250w double-ended HQI metal halides (14K phoenix bulbs and Icecap electronic ballasts) and two 80w T5 actinics over my 210g tank (6'longx2'deepx30''tall).  I take pics regularly just to be able to do these growth sequences.  It amazes me everytime I look back and see how much the corals grow.

Jason, the first acro is from you.  It grows like a weed in my tank (not that I am complaining).
