    Default Awesome Chalice care?

    I can't find any care info on these. Placement, flow and feeding. I've got it mid-level under t5ho and low to medium flow. However it's not showing mouth colors and is totally pink. Very pretty but I though they were tri-colored.

    I also have a Holly Wood stunner that's placed low~medium flow and is growing wonderfully.

    Do I treat the two the same?

    low to medium light usually do chalices well.

    as far as tri color? every chalice is different well not every but not all are tri color.some are single some are 2 some have more than 3.

    I have no fear of losing my life - if I have to save a koala or a crocodile or a kangaroo or a snake, mate, I will save it.

    Just an FYI remember, almost all sellers shoot their pictures under heavy actinic or some type of lighting to make the colors pop out. This means that what you see won't really be what you get unless you like having a blue tank.
