+1 ... maximum PO4 is 0.05, thats when you start losing colors. anything higher than 0 nitrates you lose colors too. all of my SPS are wild caught and fortunately theyve retained their colors. some colored up even better.

So far, the montipora digita & the stylophora are the carabao grass of the sps bunch :mrgreen:

Probably most of the sticks are "hardest". Encrusting are "easiest".
