I have noticed that if i place my humilis under 10k AB's, it will turn more purple like a Barney purple. But, if I put it under 14k AC's, it will turn more bluish/purple. I have also found that direct 10k light is not the best combination for mine. Its better if its sits in between bulbs. Thats just my experience. Strong flow is definitely the key to make this coral grow faster. Mine sits in VERY strong flow.

I got a large piece of this, I want to break some off and propogate.
A little unorthodox, but what I thought may work is to cut of branches, split down the middle, and glue cut side down to new rock. This IMO would give the most surface area from where it could encrust over the surrounding rock, and start sending out new branches.
Any thoughts?

Sweet Porites, Any idea where it came from (Bali,fiji,etc.)? Wild or Aquacultured? Looks like Jeff may have something similar .
Later,
Chad

Yea mine was very very dark brownish 4-5 weeks ago.. It is coloring nicely.... I gave a small spur2 does for the first time last night... Lets see what colors I get now.. This is the first dose so it might have been to small.. I am following Bobs recomendations so I am sure eveything will be great.. I thought I noticed a color change in 2 pcs last night about 9 hrs after dosing.. Can't wait for the lights to come on today...

Lovely colonies indeed, but the two posted by invincible actually look like A. gemmifera, and not A. humilis, same Acro group, but different species.

They are definitely humilis. If you look at Coral Search you could see the difference. The Coralites on gemmifera's are a little more scaly and branch's are also thicker. Mine are not like this

I do believe you! You certainly can look closer at your acros than I do, but in the first picture you posted the axial corallites look quite small to me, like in gemmifera. But I just can't see the radial ones.

Anyway, what species is this?


I guess it's another humilis, right?
