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

IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT YOU PARTICIPATE IN THE OFFICIAL GROWOUT THREAD. YOU CAN HAVE THE MOST GROWTH BUT WITHOUT MONTHLY POSTS, YOU WILL NOT WIN THE CONTEST.

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.
