    The colors in the photo are accurate.

    Mine is still brown, of all my acros it is the one that I cannot get to color up.

    I have it at 250 PAR, high flow. Where is yours?

    I probably have it under 350 par. I am blasting it with both light and flow. It’s a beautiful coral and it’s extremely healthy now. Lots of growth going on with the base. Keep an eye on the health of the base of the coral. I knew something good was happening as the base started to color up first.

    The base of mine is encrusting like crazy and green - the original frag is ugly brown. It might just be that the original stick isn't a fan of my parameters.

    That’s a good sign that the base is green.

    I have never had an issue making a coral turn green, even when it shouldn't be...
