Ok, the frags are made and the games is set to begin. Heres the rules.

 

1. No cheating, if you are caught altering your frag plug, photoshopping, or in any other way altering your frag or pics. You will be disqualified.

 

2. An update is required at the begining of each month, due no later than the 5th. If you do not update with at least a poly count you will be disqualified. A picture is prefered but not required except for the first and final updates.

 

3. With your first post with your polyp count please include a brief writeup of your system. Let us know what you're working wth.

 

4. The winner will be based on poly count. I tried very had to make sure that all the frags had the same number of polyps on them with connective tissue between all 3 polyps.

I think it was just the few who got their frags early (nono) or picked them up for others (clap)that had the luxery of cherry picking, oops DOH! I mean inadvertantly ending up with mutated frag that had nubs(huh).

 

There was this one frag I sawin one persons tank that looked like it had about 8, maybe 16 nub type bumps(whistle), I did not say anything becuase it'll make it sweeter(naughty) knocking the salt out of em (rock2)as their frag slowly melts in there tank (scary)

are we not counting nubs?

 

Winner will be based on polyp count, not nub, half polyp, double mouthed polyp (still counts as one), babie almost about to maybe open polyp counts. Only fully opened polyps will count. They can be small polyps but nubs and the previously mentioned thingies will not count towards final polyp count.

No worries man, I was just joking. I'm pretty sure we have all had our fair share of frag mishaps. I gotta watch my turbo snails or else I'll be re-gluing my frag too.
