What would prevent a chalice frag from going?

Typo in title, sorry, going=growing

Had this chalice frag for over 6 months. Color is good but it is not growing.

Looking for what I can do to fix this.

+1, params would help

That said my params are great, even bumped up the magnesium which some people say helps, and my chalice hasn't grown 1/8" in 4 months so there's definitely something to it that I'm missing...

Some chalices just don't grow well. That has been my experience anyway. Also, while many like moderate to low light, some won't color up (or grow) unless they get a fair amount of light.

Different chalices grow at different rates in my tank. I have 2 that started as small frags and in 6 months I've given 4 x 4 in. pieces to everyone in the neighborhood. I took a small frag from one and gave the colony away. And then I have some that haven't grown an inch in 6 months but look very healthy.
