How long does it take 1 of those 1/4 frags to encrust a plug. I got a few frags from tusi also a while back that have gotten really big. It’s pretty cool to see

I don't try to confuse you, but there are few thinks involved:

#1 Dip, most , include my self , dip longer then must be, some frags wont feel nothing , some stay frag for ever.

#2 Some SPS grow fast, some NOT.

#3 Depend of Light.

#4 Depend of water flow, more flow more and wider encrust .

#5 Low NO3 and low PO4 grow faster, more NO3 ( 4-5 ppm) PO4 ( 0.02 to 0.05)
nicer color.

#5 1/2 Good Salt , low Alk. 7-8 dKH.

# 6 Never , ever i bleach or kill frags from Tusi .

3/32 "guy" wont make it
1/8 " "guy" same
1/4" "guy" running well.
i Got one more 1/8" still good.

One more think may be ....i locate very low in my tank ( NO more glue, i order more)
But NOT necessary , very, very small frags ( Chips) very rare make it. 5/16 up , never problem.
