    Sorry I didn't see this earlier. Unfortunately I don't have any par measurements. It is currently in the higher flow area of the tank under my 8 bulb ATI.

    Here is my approximately 1 month update. Not sure how much vertical growth I am going to get but it is still spreading.

    Latest under blue LEDs. Cant wait to mount this in the new tank. Ignore the pocillipora spawn on the frag plug. One of the reasons I can't wait to move my corals to my new tank. If I would have known the pocillipora would spread like it has I would have never put it in my tank.

    hoping you have the same great growth in the new tank. It's really taking off!
