Hi

I put this frag in a couple of weeks ago to give a SPS a go, don't know if it's struggling or it should look like this? Advice please

Looks like it's got polyps out, new growth at the edges, colours look nice and bright.   Looks okay to me from the picture. 👍

Possible bit of die back on the front, but it looks older than two weeks to me, and it looks like there is new flesh/skeleton growing over it. 🙂

Where have you got it in the tank?  They are quite slow growers in low light (compared to other montis)

here you go, this is what normal growth looks like on a hirsuta (and other montis)
