Ya they dont really like flow too much. Also, what type of lights do you have? I cant get them to grow under my t5's unless i shade them with other large corals or rock ledges...

One of my most difficult corals are the plain bright red mushrooms. They like light a lot, higher alkalinity (above 9) and had the biggest extension at pH 8.6...

Tell me about them being the easiest corals for beginner
