Interest in a SPS Growout Competition 20 dollar buy in

Recommended Posts

So still working on the details of this new growout competition but wanted to start a new thread. I will keep everyone posted about payment. The buy in for the competition will be 20 dollars and half the proceeds will go to Tanks for Teachers and half will go to The Parkinson foundation in honor of the recent loss of Noobtosalt's grandfather.

 

 

TECO has generously offered 20 to 25 frags of this green slimer colony (clap)(clap) For those of you new to SPS this is a great starter sps, this is one of the first sps I ever got and did well for me. Right now there are 20 spots. We will likely be able to get more from this colony so if you are interested I will put you on the alternate list.

I am hoping to get this going in the next 2 to 4 weeks and will work more on the rules and judging. There will be prizes for the winners which I'm working on as well too!

update pictures of the prizes

 

Okay I sent out a pm to everyone. We should have 25 frags so the alternates should make it. I'm just factoring in the loss of a frag or 2. Those who are interested let me know and I can still put you on the alternate list. Again you have to be a paid member to be a part of this growout competition.

 

It's a hell of a deal because for 20 dollars you get a green slimer frag plus a chance to win some prizes. I picked up some of the prizes from Garrett today!(clap)(clap)

This competition will go for at least 4 months and there are a lot of prizes so you have a great chance to win something if you are still in it at the end:

 

 

We have 5 bags of this nice sand from the Premium Aquarium (clap)(clap)

I also picked up 10 gift cards for clean up crews from the Premium Aquarium

 

 

Then there's this DT's Calcium supplment. Don't know where it came from. Got it from Mr. S today

Golden basket traded a sun coral which I then traded to a LFS for these 2 prizes (clap)(clap)

Again Barrier Reef donated a 50 dollar gift certificate (clap)(clap)

BRS provided a brand new refractometer!(clap)(clap)

 

And I'm still working on more prizes!

 

Thanks again Jody from TECO for donating the 25 frags of green slimer! (clap)(clap)

 

Thanks all our wonderful sponsors above too!(clap)(clap)

SENT IN MY MONEY... LET THE TRASH TALKING BEGIN... Hopefully I have some beginners luck cause it is my first grow out and my first sps in my 30 gallon cube...

 

Awesome! Trash talking will get you extra points! (rock2)

 

Payment in.

 

Figures I'm moving my tank about the time this starts. :(

 

No worries Scott it seems something always happens to my frag. Either the polyps blow off or it falls into something... (laugh)

 

 

Updated list of payments. Thanks those of you who threw in a little extra!
