    My WD has been getting increasingly green since I got it. It’s been on the corner frag rack the whole time, seems healthy, is encrusting slowly but surely, is eating... I thought maybe I need to dial down the iron supplements but then this thread made me think it’s a normal progression especially in lower light. https://www.reef2reef.com/threads/all-green-walt-disney-acro.336116/

    Here's mine. The frag has been in my tank for about 5 weeks.

    Yours seems very green too - any plans to change anything to coax out more colors? My plan is to mount mine closer to light in my new tank. My blue-tipped tenuis has to be getting blasted with light to show both the blue and pearl white coloring.

    Not really. Just giving it time to settle down and color up. Most of the yellow corals in my tank go green. Some say its because of LEDs and that may be so. I may get together with Tim @ Unique Corals to do an ICP and go over how to get more yellow in my tank. He thinks its an imbalance or missing element.

    I hope the babies are doing well; can't post pics since I'm not the babysitter...

    Been about two months since I've had this frag in my tank. Starting to get some blue-green hues and also some baby blue color on the encrusting base.

    My WD is no longer all green! Since moving my WD from the corner frag rack of my old tank to a rock with more light and flow in the new tank, it’s less green. The water parameters are the same (nitrate, alk).

    Just curious what people's growth is on WD. Here's a 3 month shot from mine.

    That’s pretty good, giing down on the rock and shooting for the sky.

    Don't have it any more, but looking back at the pics, these pics are about three months apart. ~Double in size in between the pics. It's a good grower.

    Might have some other pics on the work computer which aren't on the server.
