Let me just say up front that if the person who wins is one of those "I Don't Do Water Changes" ninnies (yeah, Brad, I'm talking to you), I might just have to...to...well I'm not sure yet, but it will be awful.  

Andy, a protractor?  Really?

Damian, how did you get three frags?  Don't think I'm not on to you.

David, what exactly are you measuring, man!?  That is like the worst frag measurement of all time.

John, as expected, your write up is an A+.  Even if you don't win, you will have the best pics, hands down.

Trash-Talk Month #1...check!

Smacking everyone around I see

Id do water changes on my tank but I don’t have time- It always seems I’m changing water in someone else’s tank for some reason😣

Its ground hogs day 5 days out of the week

Wow, the sass is flowing strong already I see...LOL

I guess I could expand upon my system a bit...

Let's just say it's in flux atm.

Tank - 110g 48x30x18

Sump - just combined my frag system(downstairs) with my main display (upstairs) into a 40x50 tank.  A bit of live sand in bins, filter socks, and rock I'm making live for the 280g that will come online in a few months

Skimmer - Reef Octopus Regal 250 Int that's a handful of years old

UV - 40w Pentair Smart UV

Algae Scrubber - Clearwater CW100 - just put online

Lights - 2x AI Hydra 52 HD - blue heavy

Flow - 2x Nero 5

          - Waveline DC 6000 on a Oceans Motions Closed loop

Return - Sequence Yellowtail

Parameters - Pretty common 8.5dkh, etc

Salt - Reef Crystals

Dosing - BRS 2 part and occasional mag

Occasional use of carbon and GFO, but those haven't been added since the changeover.

Water changes - 10% every 2 weeks or so, depending on how many Honey-Do list projects I have running at the time

 

The tank is slightly miffed as I just removed the old sump, which had the sand bed, extra rock, and refugium, but it's recovering swiftly.  Once I cut a hole in the wall and add the 280g, it's bound to give me grief again briefly, as both tanks and the frag tanks will be on a single system.  The frag is mounted high in the center of the tank, so PAR will be a tad on the high end...lol

Dang this is getting spicy and it hasn't even been a week. 

Well here is my entry. About 5/8" on the tall piece. 

Tank is a Reefer 250

Lighting is 2 Red Sea LED90s

Current eFlux DC return pump 

Flow is Icecap gyre and a cheap Jebao 

Curve 5 skimmer

I do about 15% weekly water changes and am dosing Tropic Marin Carbocalcium by hand currently waiting on my dosing container to get here. 

This frag and my Oregon Tort are my first SPS outside of montipora. So hopefully it grows well🤞

I got a pretty nice chunky frag, largest branch is about 1" smallest just under 1/2" middles about 3/4". I swapped the plug to a hex disk 

Looks like you won the frag lottery Taylor... I need to have a chat with Jorge 😁

Here is my nubbin.  Red Sea 350 dosing B-Ionic two part with a Trident as well as daily Red Sea AB+.  She is right at 3/4” with nice PE.  XR30s, Nyos 120, Reefwave, etc.

 

lets see if I can finally keep a frag going to the end, sitting at 0-3 right now.  Shot on iPhone X with icecap lens and orange filter.

 

it said by May 1st, not before, I feel like I made the cut 😇

May 30 growout update. There is some growth, but its color has faded a little bit. I think I need to increase the nutrients in this tank. Lots of sps growth in the tank that is consuming nutrients.

Haven’t killed it yet. I turned up the whites so it looks a little brown but better looking under bluer light. A couple of new nubs growing out of where a branch was cut from it.

Well my color is good and it is hairy as heck but no encrusting. Or growth, really. I'm not worried, though I'd feel better if there was growth down to the plug.

I do feel a little sorry for all the wittle bitty frags in Brad's tank. They're so cute, though!

Here's my update. So far so good! Color is great, super pink, super fuzzy! So far its encrusted a tad, maybe 1/16" upward growth from the largest branch, if any at all. Could be measurement error! Did a few upgrades since the first check in. I upgraded lighting to a 36" 8 bulb ati powermodule hybrid. I cranked it up and get 370 par where the frags currently sitting. Also got a aquamaxx carx online. Alks been fluctuating a bit between 8.7-9dkh but target is 9! Also pardon the dinos. Despite those things I'm getting good color and growth from most all of my sps!

Have slight encrusting on back side. I’ve noticed most of the growth up! My color and polyp extension has been great! Nothing has changed except for starting to bubble scrub the tank nightly for 4 hours. Sorry for the horrible pic

Mine didnt appreciate its placement apparently and I was too busy with work and building the new system, so I lost it.

I'm out (of course) had another crash days after I brought it home and lost it and all the other sticks I had collected over the previous month so at least it had company 😞

Mine has lost a little color but still have good polyp extension and might be starting to encrust the glue. Need to up my nutrients. Also do to the fact I have placed it further back from the glass, it’s hard to get a good pic. Definitely need a better camera than my phone.

I barely see any growth, maybe 1/32" at most, but it is starting to encrust a tiny bit.
