Unfortunately I'm out, bought some peppermint shrimp from an lfs who was adamant about them not ever touching corals to take out some aptaisia. Plopped them in the tank and after one week stripped 2 whole acroporas clean of there flesh, which included this one.

I'm glad to report my frag is doing well.  I'm lucky because brown jelly syndrome damaged and/or killed a dozen other frags in my tank over the past few weeks.  I think things are stabilized for now.

I have only seen about 1 cm of growth in height, and it's encrusting a bit at the base.  Polyp extension and coloration look good.

Sorry to hear that, at least you win the last place prize.  I have a lab squirt bottle and set of brushes for cleaning testing tubes.

It's alright, should've gone with my gut on it. Anyhow, thanks for the prize! But, I'd like to bump the gift to the person who finishes the whole contest though since I didn't quite make it 😊 and maybe if someone ever does any trimming on this piece or a strawberry shortcake I'd be happy to trade some green paper for them.

My piece will be up for grabs when the contest is over. Not really a piece I like that much. I've seen a little encrusting and a few tips grew a few millimeters. Polyps are out all the time. That's all so far. Had calcium crash when using b-ionic so I went to twice weekly water changes to get stuff back where they should be and switched back to salinity salt. Stopped all dosing except pure vitamin C twice daily. Now I've got a wounded clown, probably from my evil tailspot blenny so I'm using seachem stress guard, we'll see how it destroys corals.

Is the flesh coming off that or is just how the picture looks?

Just how the picture looks. The blue/purple on the tips are super colorful though. Hard to capture with iPhone.

Pretty close to last month. There is more basing out happening on the top side, which you can't see here. You can see where I knocked to branches off accidentally. On of the spots has a new polyp growing out of the center. The good news is that I have a backup now in the frag tank--and it seems to be encrusting already.

Cant get a decent pic to save my life with my Samsung. Need to learn sometime...or get a new battery for my camera lol. It's now in the main tank way up high and getting a very nice blue base. Not sure about about growth but looking good so far.

I have been mucking around with the wifes tank lately.... and moving my aquascaping around.  I grabbed my cannon last night to snap a picture...and the battery was dead.   I did what anyone would do > hot tub> bed.

Hi All,

Here's my updated pic.  I have seen some growth on the tips and actually more encrusting on the bottom!

Will be interesting to see them in order month to month to see how they progress.

Just maintaining my weekly 25% water changes, filter changes approx= 2x / week with good flow in the tank. 

 I still actually have mine on the bottom in the sand, but a Nuvo 20 isn't as deep as many tanks and I find my lights tend to burn corals too easy in a small tank like that. (even when I have them at 50% )
