    If your light, flow and parameters (especially Kh) are right it is easy.

    hey butcherman...

    I run 4 x 54w T5's, Just have 1x 6000lph sunsun vibration pump running in 2 directions.

    Nitrates are up - 5ppm, ph04 - 0.05mg (hope this is how u supposed to read it - 3rd blue box in the salifert test kit) I think my intank algae scrubber aka GHA is abosrbing much of it...

    Dont know if my tank is a canditate for this frag...dont want to kill it...

    Hey Butcherman...

    Yes, it is a large red/brown plating monti. There is another brown/green one growing nicely on the same rock. I am not sure about the other parameters as yet...but there is growth. I accidently broke a piece of when i bumped it...and the piece also showed signs of growth...

    I would like to have dibs on no. 3 but think I am actually looking at 2 frags? Or am I wrong?

    @Clownfish9906 the birds nest is a pretty hardy SPS coral, if you maintain water parameters, especially Kh. You wont have problems. You are already growing monti so birds east should be no problem.
