Mr. Bret & Softy's Sakura Growout - Official Thread -

Recommended Posts

Welcome to Mr. Bret & Softy’s Sakura Growout!!! 2016

This IS the official thread for this contest.

First and foremost, THANK YOU for participating. I know that everyone is getting a good deal on some nice zoos, but I want to thank you for being a member of this club, and choosing to participate in events like these.

Rules for this growout:

1. Your first post must include a quick write up of your system and at least two pics of your frag. You must include a top down and profile. The more pics the better, but at least one of each is required. Failure to post the required content will result in disqualification.

2. You will be required to post photo updates once a month. These pics can be your choice of angle. I recommend more than one pic, but one is all that is required. You will have 5 days before and after the 1st of each month to post your pics. If you cannot post during the required time frame, then please contact Mr. Bret or Softy. This must be done prior to the posting deadline. If you do not contact someone and you do not post up in the required time, you will be disqualified.

3. This competition is meant for fun and friendly competition. Please keep everything on the up and up. No cheating, frag swapping… no funny business at all. You will not only be disqualified from this contest, but possibly from being able to participate in any growouts on this site.


4. The frags must remain on the original plug. You may modify the plug if needed. Placement of the frag can be anywhere you want. You can also move the frag to a different location within the same tank. Moving the frag to a new/different tank is NOT permitted. If the frag is moved to a different system during the contest, the you will be disqualified. One of the goals is to see how the polyps grow over time in different systems.


5. Judging will be based on head count, maturity of polyps, and overall health.

This competition will run for 4 months. The deadline for your first post is June1st, 2016. This gives everyone 3 weeks to pick up your frags and post your system specs and pictures. Failure to post by June 1st, 2016 Midnight will be an automatic disqualification. You always have the option to communicate with Mr. Bret of Softy prior to the deadline if issues occur.

This is a simple contest…. Most of you have likely are already participating in another growout. Pretty easy rules to follow.

What you are all competing for???

That will be posted after the participant list is locked. At that time, I will open this thread for posting. Keep in mind, we are using the money from the buy in to purchase the prizes… so the more the participants, the better the prize!!! This, BTW, will be done a bit differently than the ‘norm’…. more info once the list is locked.

Frags can be picked up starting Saturday May 7th. Mr. Bret will be attending the meeting on the 14th and can distribute frags. Please arrange for payment through Mr. Bret. PayPal and cash are the two forms of payment. Please only pay through PayPal 24hrs prior to pick up. This will help us avoid confusion and spend time tracking down people.

Competition ends October 5th with the 5th and final pics from your frags.

I'm going to have to back out of this sadly as I'm right in the middle of a tank transfer and I will have a completely different system in the middle of this competition.

 

I can still get powderblues frag at the meeting.

I'll need a frag whenever they're al, grown out and done

 

Sassssss!!!!..........you have't posted for ever. I had consider doing a " Where is Sasquatch "  post, lol. 

 

Nice to see ya post. Part of the reason we choose these to do a grow out is because we have a lot of them. I have a frag for you already. It has a sign on it that says..." FREE, if you have a Castle to put me on.. "   I for one miss seeing the Sasquatch around riding that funky party bike. 

 

So, you have a frag waiting for ya, Free if you have a tank with a Castle in it to put it on. No Castle, No Frag, No Service!

Well then it's a good thing there is currently a Zoa castle build in progress.. They are still constructing the moat around it and running into technical problems but I'm sure that will be worked out

So it turns out I won't be moving as soon as I thought so my new tank won't be up till latter then I though. Like Emerald I'm going to have to back out since I'll be moving tanks in the middle of the competition. I'll be in the next one for sure tho!

This will actually work out well for me as I am at least 4 months away from my new tank being ready and a little extra cycling time while the grow out  comp ends won't hurt =)
