    Default Raptors Peace Coral

    What kind of lighting and should I use for Raptors Peace coral?

    Mine is growing fine but I cant get the color I want out of it. The lavender centers are not as intense and the outsides are more on the greenish brown side.

    Any tips?

    Feed it a varied meaty diet and it will grow like a weed.
