Is my Birds Nest receiving too strong light?

Postby sdiesel77 on 12 Oct 2016 15:38

Hi Guys,
I switched to LED (Chinese 165W) almost 2 months ago and coral growth has been spectacular since then. I am gradually increasing the intensity on weekly basis.
I noticed that my Birds Nest, which is the one that showed the biggest growth, has become brighter in color and polyps are shorter.
Is it because of the sudden fast growth? Or because the light is not too strong? Or is it something else?
Water parameters look ok.

Thanks

Looks good to me, plus if it shows growth and colours are good I wouldn't worry about it...

Are pe noticeably less? If not leave it sometimes the more we meddle...

Otherwise did flow change or did you clean substrate lately causing sand storm or are nutrients creeping up. Keep an eye on coral.
