What kinda light are they under? I don't have much luck with chalice under led but it always grew for me under halides and t-5

Man I love Chalice - these look great!

I have one piece and it needed to be really low in thank. I run mine under Radion Gen2's at 70% on High Growth and over the past few weeks the thing has started to take out. I had it too high in the tank and it must have been getting too much light. After dropping it lower it seems to be much happier - extends it's polyps a lot now.

Fantastic pics. What kinda camera do you use? Do you feed your chalice? I find a lot of people don't feed corals, just rely on fish waste. But they have feeding tentacles for a reason....

I'm using 14K 250w MH + T5 + blue led strip.

I'm using canon t1i with stock lenses + achromatic macro. Yes, I feed my chalices.
