It's time to show off guys :) Post your progression shots.This works best when you post a cropped pic of a specific coral. It's best to try to post pics of corals from the same angle with the same lighting so we can make a good comparison. Be sure to date each pic so we know the growth duration.

I have to dig up old photos later but I have these table pics handy for now

Very good growth on both of your posts! I actually posted on another site about what "average growth" is. Would you guys rate your growth as average, or above? Also, besides stability, I'm curious if photoperiod i.e. less light vs more light has a significant impact on growth and color. Jackson, your coral seems to have morphed from a deep deep blue to this beautiful, unique piece. Any thoughts or ideas?

These days I don't know if my growth is above average :) If you compare to an unhealthy SPS reef then yes, certainly above average. Lots of guys are keeping nice SPS reefs and IMO growth like mine is typical.
I have seen and experienced much faster growth though. In lower nutrient tanks that I kept I've had corals grow like weeks. Colors were not the same though. Always pastel on color. Corals kind of got that zooxanthelle limited zeovit look, like I dose zeospur. This looks awesome on some corals but not as good overall IMO.

As for this coral morph, no idea! Of course I am thrilled about it, but I can't attribute anything to its change other than it's a unique coral :D

P.S.I'm not really sure on photoperiod length for growth.
