Love the torch but haven't had good luck with mine -  it won't expand like in the lfs. When I bought it I've moved it a few times and nothing my water parameters are good all my other corals are doing good. Don't know what to do anymore need some help?

    How much light do you have and have you tried feeding it directly with mysis or other filter feeding organisms?

i wanted to comment on the torch coral. It is my favorite in the lsp class. I am currently growing a yellow tipped torch under 130 watts of power compact lighting. This coral is an amazing beautiful creature. My torch loves to be fed frozen mysis shrimp. It currently has 2 heads they are developing into 4 heads.previously i had a small torch under 250 watts of hqi metal halide. That coral became a basketball sized showpiece. I must add they can grow under moderate light,but metal halide will really make them thrive as far as color and super calcification.
