Fast is relative. Most soft corals are fast growers, though you need to provide the proper conditions for it. If you're looking to fill a tank, Xenia is a good way. If you're looking for fragging every few weeks, green stars, xenias, kenya trees and some of the leathers are all pretty quick to recover.

I had a finger leather that grew very well. It was nice to watch it grow over the months. Unfortunately it died when we moved and I have yet to replace it. I'm kinda digging some of the softies these days for their growth. I'm looking for a nice devils hand and maybe a bigger colony of toadstool.
