Both , is.....OK. lol
I try to challenge my self, W.D. is NOT hard to care, price is one problem , second , water flow is the "secret " in most SPS , the goal is to create a frag or mini colony like Crown , more polys , encrust more is more stronger and healthy , feed better and make more baby's, easy to.......frag. NOT like Bamboo Sticks .

Look at right down , is one SPS grow 3" wide from 3/8" frag. I will provide the name, soon.
