Because they are photosynthetic. They are light loving. Light is what's for dinner.

Why wouldn't they grow toward their food source?

Pretty much every single coral that i have ever seen (and that has been a lot since i work at a LFS) grows up toward the light.

I understand all of that :lol:
The colors are very nice and very good growth but
Some of them they are reaching for the light very intensively i don't know why .
I have grown SPS for years they will spread out more than just go straight up toward the light. I don't say is any thing wrong with them ,i just like to know how so i can do the same thing .
Mine is always running in to eash other.
