that's amazing growth. my orange cap hasn't grown near that much in the 6 months i've had it. it was a small quarter size frag though when i got mine. it's probably quadrupled in size since then and it's just now starting to create a circle with sides. (easiest way to describe it). what is your secret? calcium reactor? lighting? flow?
yeah i'm running 2x250w 6.5k iwaski's and 2x110 VHO super blues for coloring.
what size tank? also what is your placement of the orange cap? how far under the lights? i had mine pretty close to the lights till recently and i moved it about half way down the tank. it never lost its color but not growing like i think it should.
Ours is mid-level to lower and under saki's. I have one under high flow and it has thickened up and has stayed like a plate. It's about 5/16" thick in the middle and about 7" across.. The other one's are in low flow and are not as thick or as big but have started to whirl up. Keep the calicum up.
The Spokane Reef club meeting was held at Allen's house last month so I was able to see his tank in person it looks even better than the picture. The center area where you can see the back through the rock looks awesome in person as the halide flickers behind the rock on the back wall. I would recommend this to others who might be setting up a tank. The effect is very cool!
