    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.

    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.

    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.

    I want to understand what lighting best brings out colors in WDs... what kind of colors are you getting & under what lighting?

    I’m using Kessil AP700s at 40% plus T5 blue plus (300 PAR) and just started a more blue Kessil regimen, but still get just green & purple colors out of my WD (WD originally from Tim):

    Mine are the same colors as your's though I'm closer to 60%

    These are from my colony but under Radions. Different tank and regiment. Does water changes religious my, once every week. I wonder if it's a element difficency in our tank?

    I'll try to take a better picture in whiter light

    I run Radion xr15w G4 Pros. Peak lighting is 7 hours running a 18,500K setting. It's getting around 300 PAR (PUR is at 78-80% when using SenEye).

    Under 18,500k lights with orange filter.
