Has anyone gotten their Wilsoni's to grow?? Mine seem healthy and happy, no receding or anything, but basically no growth.

It is crazy how much they morph and how bright they are once settled in. Just wish I could find a way to get them to grow. Have had a few for a few years. They eat every time I feed and seem to do well under very low and pretty high light, but don't grow at all for me.

I am awaking this thread!

Looking for some info on this piece. I love wilsoni's and this guy is about 2" long. currently under a 150w MH getting moderate flow. As you can see, his skeleton is shown under the mantle, which doesn't bother it. My question is, should i move it to a lower light and less flow, and burry the skeleton under the sand while leaving the "meat" above the sand line. How fast of a grower are they? If its like my acans, then it should have doubled by now. Ive had it for 3 months now. Here are a few pictures. I hope to get some educated responses with this.


Also if you have a wilsoni, please post it up and tell me your husbandry.

Lower light and less flow in my experience. I have 4 , one is the size of a basketball cut in half. They are under Radion G3 Pro xr30's. I run the lights on that tank 100% blue, no whites or other colors. They seem to bleach really quickly under bright lights and definitely need to be fed as much as possible to keep their intense coloring.

here was mine



and here it is now



I am not sure what killed it, but I am thinking that I overfed it with WAY TOO MUCH coral frenzy one night. I mean, come on, it's open tentacles are practically screaming "FEED MEEEEE" (and i complied)

Lesson learnt lol!

On the bright side, flesh die off stopped after about 2 weeks, and has been alive for the past 4 months with what remains (i think the flesh is SLOWLY growing back) the tentacles still open up though, but i haven't fed it in the past 4 months

I doubt it was from over feeding. Mine recently died also. I started noticing receding when my alk dropped below 6.5. It seemed like once receding started, I couldn't stop it. This was in a low flow and completely shadowed from lights. It was hard to take the loss because it was the most expensive piece I had. I'll try again later after I get my tank stable.

I have 3 of these. Love the crazy colours you can get.

I feed them almost nightly. Pellets, chopped shrimp or scallops (the cheap small ones). All smaller colonies. They show more pop under blue lighting (tank lighting is closer to white right now).
Shout out to Twwety - great looking corals and great photos!

Just an observation - Symphyllia wilsoni is no longer a valid classification (taxonomy) - they have been reclassified as Australophyllia wilsoni

They are in the family Lobophylliidae

Like many lps, they need consistent parameters and clean water. Fluctuations in alk (or low levels) can lead to myriad problems. Overfeeding shouldn't hurt, but subsequent nutrient spike from overfeeding could; especially if the water is already a bit loaded.
