badxgillen posted a topic in Grow Outs, Group Buys, and CompetitionsOnce 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. 5)Lexinverts-* 8) HigheThinking-* 17) Eclipse-* 20) Kenshin-*
badxgillen posted a topic in Meetings and EventsIt was a great time indeed, Erin was a great host answering all sorts of questions and his crew was not only polite but very helpful. The store was neat and clean, very open and inviting. Stole this pic from Emerald since it was better than my store front pic. Lots of windows make the shop bright and being well lit makes the atmosphere a bit "lighter". The shop itself was looking spectacular, this store is locked and loaded. As with any time we visit the TPA we gotta leave with something and this time was no exception...But we will get to that later when there is a little show and tell of some shop purchases.
