Die lila "Milka" wächst sehr schnell. Die grüne wächst bei mir deutlich langsamer und die pinke wächst am langsamsten.

Die Koralle sollte hell stehen, man sollte trotzdem aber darauf achten, dass man es mit dem Licht nicht übertreibt, da sie sonst schnell Verbrennungen zeigt.
Das Wasser sollte immer Klar sein sonst öffnet sie sich nur selten.
Habe die Erfahrungen gemacht, dass die Strömung keine große Rolle spielt.
