From what I have read and heard that is what they like. I know my star gets hit with lots of flow and loves it. Great color and growth.

oh good, thx for looking at that for me ya'll, i was kinda nervous. Didnt know if it would work for everyone, being that it's quicktime. i had read about the correct current, but untill you actually see it, you never know for sure.

My star polyps have also always done better and grown faster in areas of strong alternating flow.

I couldn't view the video but my gsp is in the highest flow of my seahorse tank. It's waving all over and open all the time... when it was in lower flow it didn't look good at all. It's spreading too so it must be happy!
