    Here are the rules copied from the Sign Up Thread:

    - All participants must be paid members before receiving your coral
    - Growout coral must be picked up in person at the December 2nd Elections Meeting. Exceptions can be made. Please PM me first.
    - Post your setup, your tank maintenance and treatment of incoming corals
    - Take a photo of the frag within 2 weeks of acquiring it, regardless of treatment administered and condition of the tank (No Photoshop)
    - Make sure to count the number of polyps (babies included)
    - Continue to monitor you system with bi-weekly or at least monthly photos of the coral and status updates and changes made to your system.
    - At the end of the allotted time frame, we will judge the best grow out and declare a winner. The time frame will be 5 months, which will be around the May 2018 meeting.
    - Since the frags may vary in size, the winner will be chosen by the percentage new growth
    - Prize is $50 GC to the sponsor of your choice.
    - Lastly, Have Fun! :D

    I hope! My hope to win is everyone forgets to update monthly!


    Here is mine!
    72 bowfront. Water changes every 3ish weeks. 2 black box leds with the plug about 12-15 inches from the water line.

    No dosing, no special treatment with new corals.

    Let’s hope my water lets it grow and multiply!

    Starting count 1 head.

    And to clarify we are doing number of heads on this one babies included. It says percentage of new growth but I think everyone started with one head. If not state that in your first post.

    I'm not sure how to do it on tapatalk if you're using that.
    There's an "Upload a File" button on the regular version to post pics.

    In case the other photos didn't work (I posted on tapatalk) It doesn't seem like you can view them on the forums.
