Gonna cut this off until I get it fragged up and know an exact number, I got you in at number 18 LC so I think you are good. It is possible that some one may not want in on the grow out any more or that I get a couple more frags than I anticipated but I am thinking it is at its limit  for acceptance as of now.

Picking up on my question about types of grow outs, for this one, do the proceeds go to the club? Maybe we should donate them to the food drive!

Picking up on my question about types of grow outs, for this one, do the proceeds go to the club? Maybe we should donate them to the food drive!

The club didn't buy the corals nor did the sponsors donate them. All the efforts of making arrangements to get the coral in, purchasing the coral,plugs,glue, maintaining the coral, fragging coral, and then healing it up and distributing the coral all lies on me. And I do this to help the popularity of the Sponsors who help out our Club. I have already spent over $200 out of my pocket and a couple months of TLC growing it out so that is acclimated and ready to chop for the Grow Out.

 

Just like the TECO grow out there was no money made on my part just recouped the costs, infact even the prize coral came out of my pocket ,so this is purely my doing only. If I some how get more money than I spent in then I will put it towards a prize.

 

Having a PNWMAS Grow Out or a sponsor donated Grow Out should be something we should look into for sure.

Oh Yes, you know there will be a prize but I won't spoil it yet, wait for the official thread and we will shed some light on that.

I am thinking right off of the bat a catchy name need to be bestowed upon such a beautiful acro.

Thanks for the explanation, Bert.  You've always been super-generous with the club and fellow reefers.  I'm just learning how this works.  So it's not a PNWMAS-sponsored Grow Out, or a Cuttlefish-sponsored Grow Out.  You just purchased the acro at Cuttlefish and have put in a lot of money and TLC into it and are running a fun contest.  Got it.

Alright, your spot will be given to the next in line, there was no shortage of contestants this time around.

 

And just a reminder that

Most of our meetings are free of charge to people who do not have a payed membership. There are a few perks that are available to the paying members on the site, this just happens to be one of them. I know you have partaken in a few events but to get in on "all" the raffles, discounts, subforums, voting\elections, and Grow Outs you gotta be a official member.

Glad to see your keeping it going as a paid membership perk. When I ran these I got grief from a few but they don't realize how much is put into the club as well as the grow out itself. When I get a tank again my dues will be paid. Until then I still lurk once in awhile. :)

      Lighting- the new Reefi LED for 12 hours on and 12 hours off.
       
      PH 8
      KH 9-10 I don't want it this high and aim to let it lower some before dosing again.
      Calcium 500 comments same as KH above
      Magnesium 1500

      Nitrites 0

      I have a total of two polyps to start with...Actually I had four but I cut mine in half to make sure my friend Lex got to participate as well as I. It was my system that they got blown around in any ways. maybe they will show up...
       

       
      Maybe not :(  
       
      There is 300 pounds of rock in the system as well so who know where those polyps are.

      Once again I hope Jesse does not mind me utilizing most of his write up for the rules of the competition. If it is uncalled for please let me know and I will see that it is taken down but if it is fine with you then it is much appreciated.
       
      Well Contestants this is the official thread to post your entries! If you post your entry in another thread it will not count. Contest begins May 1st! You have a week before and a week after to post up your picture. This competition will run 4 months!
       
      Ground Rules: The goal of this competition is to be both educational and fun. I am hopeful the winners will be able to share their "secrets" and truly see how different lighting, supplements, dosing, and tank parameters can make a difference in growth.
       
      Rules and Guidelines for The Premium Aquarium Grow Out Competition. 
       
      1.Your first post must include a quick write up of your system in the competition thread. Including tank size, flow, lighting, placement of the frag, frag measurement, equipment (ie calcium reactor, dosing, etc), feeding regiment, etc.
       
      2. You will be required to post photo updates. The contest will start May 1st. You will be required to post a photo update once a month. I will remind you of this when the time is soon to post. I know life gets busy and people go out of town so you have a 2 week window to post.You will have 7 days before the 1st and 7 days after to post your update. If you do not post within the allotted time frame you will be disqualified. 
       
      3. Please no cheating. This competition is meant to be fun and for bragging rights. Cheaters will be disqualified and banned from any future competitions(PEDS were not used for Frankenfrag).
       
      4. The frags must remain on the original or similar plug. You may modify the plug if needed example cutting off the stem for placement but only once. You may place the frag anywhere you want in your tank and you may move it to a different spot during the competition but it is frowned upon  and you cannot move it to a new tank as the point is to see how the frag does over time in different systems.
       
      5. Initial photos of frags need to have a top down as well as side shot so we can all see the frag and what you are starting with, a ruler next to the frag to provide proof of coverage is preferred. No hiding encrusting parts in your photos. Not following the rules will cause you to be disqualified, I know that sounds harsh but it is out of fairness to the rest of the group. Remember a lot can happen in 4 months. During the last growout many were DQ'd due to not posting. It's really simple. JUST DO IT. Length of competition: The competition will run for 4 months. This will give us enough time for the frag to grow. A lot can happen in 4 months and a lot of people could drop out, so if you are persistent, you have a chance to win the grand prize. This will give EVERYONE the same advantage\disadvantage with acclimation and so on. Pictures will be required frequently for updates. Final post will be September 7th 2016 for the winner. 
       
      Judging a winner: Will be a little different this grow out. The most growth over the frag plug from the initial size wins, Mounding will not be a factor. We will make the final measurements by September 7th preferably with the same ruler used in the initial few posts.
       
      Winner  of each category shall have glorious bragging rights along with the honors of choosing a desired "Nick Name" for their winning Goni.
       
      and there will be prizes...
      The first being a $50.00 gift certificate to The Premium Aquarium
      and Second wins a choice zoa or SPS frag pack.
      and Third will get the zoa or SPS frag pack not already taken by 2nd.
       
      Here I will be including a list of people who have checked in that will be updated over the length of the competition.

      A little over a month ago there was a thread that had some mentioning of wanting to do an LPS for a grow out instead the SPS or zoanthids that had been previously done. LPS is a big category, so it took me a while thinking about it to really narrow things down. At first I wanted to do some form of favia or closed brain but those can be aggressive. Then I was tempted by the beautiful extravagant chalices that are too spendy for any one person, but those grow slower than molasses. Oh what to do...
       
       I needed something with some color, not too hard to keep and not something too common...
      A trip to The Premium Aquarium and a long chat with Garret and then Chris got me thinking straight!
      I got the full run down of possible candidates and believe me there was no shortage, brains, chalices, acans, and euphyllias. But what finally got my attention and really got me thinking was this beautiful purple gonipopora. Actually there was a few purple gonis there but this one was bright purple and white, with a true flower pot look, not one of those encrusters.
       

       
      This picture is with flash on, the goni in the back ground is the same just without as much warm white light from the camera. Look at those purples.
       
      These are beauties thats for sure.
       

       
      Lots of motion with these too. 
      When I first acquired these chunks they were slow to transition to home tank life, you know how some of those finicky gonioporas can be, but over the last few weeks they have really started to perk up. I think these are going to be a reasonably hardy variety once all is said and done.
      With those fat and juicy polyps.
       
      SO, any body here want to try their hands at another grow out contest!?
      I have a feeling this one won't be quite as temperamental as the acropora, but you never know, each tank is a little different. Grand prize winner will be seeing some fine TPA corals in the end, second place through 13th will get to keep their prize purple gonis, and last places will get the intricate bleached white skeleton of their entry frag..Its a win win all around!
       
      besides, its always a hoot to do these Grow Outs.
