Hi Guys-

I've been trying so hard to keep chalices under my LED's, but for some reason they keep receding and I end up giving it away to my friends that have T5's.

If you currently have LED, let me know how you are able to keep the color and growth of Chalices.

Thanks

I don't have any issues from growing chalices under led... I don't give them direct lighting and they do really well. They are under radions

I've had an Elos led, Ai Nano, homemade cree xre (that I fried), and now a Vitrea led. I've always had a handful of chalices in my tank. Only bleaching thus far was from Sandy.

I dont dip chalices, just temp acclimate for 30 mins then I put them in. The chalice stwrys to reced instantly, I tried dripping to, still same problem. I keep them on the sand bed .I sort of gave up on chalices.

Are they placed in the right areas in the tank, Are they getting enough flow, light and supplied with food? Have you ever checked your Par Readings? Does that LED have any UV chips?

I have the Razor 120w. I only have two chalices, but they seem happy. One is growing nicely, and makes some crazy sweeper tentacles at night. The other is newish, but seems fine. My photoperiod is more intense than yours, though. Could it be that? I also have a good moderate amount of flow on them.

I dip EVERYTHING, and if something looks funny, I dip it again. My personal problem coral is my bubble corals. They just hate me.
