View Full Version : Purple slimer, how long to grow an inch?

Hello, I have a purple slimer for the past 7 months already ( tank finally hit the 1 year mark! WOO!)
So, thing is, it encrusted over the super glue completely over 3 months ago. But, it still hasn't began to branch or grow. I don't see any growth in it whatsoever.. My caps got huge since I bought them all together with the slimer, but the slimer not one bit has it branched out.
Is this normal, or is it its location?
Its located at the top part of the tank, receiving strong flow. I have tek t5's, all individual reflectors. Skimmer, everything at perfect conditions.
Its a deep-ish purple color, no bleaching, all polyps fully extended.

Any ideas??

try roughing up the tips with a nail filer or something...

Patience. Frags usually encrust before starting to grow vertically. Often, Many branches develop right at the encrusted base.
