Bro, let us know 'bout your lighting.
Which kind of light are you using?
Whats its kelvin, watt and lighting duration.

Also, write 'bout your water parameters.

Lastly, if since 1yr, there is no sign of coraline, then you need to seed it in your tank.
Buy a small piece of lr with good coraline and seed that in your tank.
Or collect some coraline scrapping from any other marine tank and add it to yours one.
Before adding stop all filters, skimmer and lock overflow outlets.
Just wave maker may run. Then add scrapping and waite for 1 hour. Then restart your all system.
May be you get a result. But you need minimum 3 months after that.
Good luck bro........ :)

For a piece of coraline lr, you should visit the shop from where you are buying marine stuffs and live stocks.
Or those seller who has their own marin set-up, they can supply you a small piece of coraline lr.

For scrapping, those shop keeper can give it free to you, if you have a good relation. If not, then you should find out a local marine guy or you can contact our KACian mariners, who has their matured set-up.

BTW, there are thousands of theory and do & don'ts for coraline growth.

But fact is few mariners get their coraline easyly and some has to stuggle for it.
And why? and how? is the million doller question without a strong answer.

But IMO, after seeding (I think scrapping is best, as coraline spores are scattared in your entire tank by WM) keep onn only actinics for 3 weeks minimum 12 hoursly/day. Then slowly add white lights with it for small time span per day and slowly increase white light periods day by day. That'll enhance coraline growth and decrease other algae growth as green or haire algae needs intence light source and 430nm blue color intensity enhance pigmentation of coralines.

And then pray to GOD for something good.
Lastly pH must be near 9.
And diy: 2part dosing must run according to your tank necessity.

Best of luck bro............ :D
