Add some cheato algae into your tank. This will speed up the growth.

Already there, feed mysis once a week, I'll be patient , my Duncan's grow out of control, hope the same on these some day

Try feeding once a day.. and get some variety in there.

LPS seem to like meatier foods.. cyclopeeze would be a nice supplement, other types of shrimp, go to your LFS and peek around in the frozen section. What they have in stock will always trump what we suggest :)

Thanks, time for a trip

Make sure your alkalinity, calcium, and magnesium levels are high enough, if they're low then it is difficult for the coral to put down new skeleton. If you're feeding regularly (though more often wouldn't hurt) then I'd suspect it's more lighting related, how old are the bulbs?

Wait, what?

 

To the OP: blasto's grow slowly but increasing your feeding should help. I fed mine Rod's Food several times a week That said, it seemed to depend on the individual - had many under identical care with some growing and some not.
