Do most of you keep them in bright light or more subdued lighting?

Meteor shower is an LPS, but those seem to like lower, bluer lighting. If your lighting is too white they'll usually either brown out or bleach...

I keep them in various light. In the brighter light, the tissue goes aquamarine blue, and in lower light it goes navy blue. This is true for the meteor storms and the other similar colour morphs that I have (orange on green, yellow on blue).

Plan carefully where you put them though. I placed 2 tiny frags on my favourite large central rock thinking they would make a nice background to my future SPS corals. I have now found that they spread/encrust FAST, and the SPS frags that they have come close to die back as soon as they get 1/4" away. Sigh.

Figures, the one nice looking coral that grows easily for me turns out to be a weed. :(

I've kept in all different lighting. They seem to do best in more subdued lighting so in a sps dominated setup they do better at the bottom or under a branching colony.
