We love our Duncan. They are very cool. Glad yours opened. Ours is just getting green. I think he is completely open. Not sure. They are very cool looking I love all the motion.

Low alkalinity will affect a lot of LPS function.

How stable is the alkalinity?

What is the Magnesoum level? I had some scans that were not happy when my Mg was low.

I assume your salinity is 1.026 not 1.26 or that could be the issue right there.

Alk is stable for sps corals to do well. Salinity is 1.026 . Mag is somewhere around 1400

Awesome. The reason I asked is they looked almost redish in the photo. I'd kill for some red duncans!

When we got it there was not much green. After a few months the centers are very green and rest is more purple.

Here is a picture with lights off
