    This will be the thread for the photos and information regarding the BBEBs grow out contest. All pics needed for this contest must be posted here.

    Contest notes
    1. Entry fee is labeled with each potential contest frag, this covers your cost of the frag, transportation, a donation to MASC and puts $$ in the pool for the winner(s). Winner pot is whatever remains after cost of frag and donation with minimum pool being $30 for some of the higher priced frags this pool will be much higher based on minimum buy ins.
    2. Frags will be cut two weeks before contest start and individually numbered. Once numbered, you'll randomly be assigned a number, and pickup your frag. There will be no cherry picking, all luck of the draw.
    3. Each contestant must post a photo of their frag within 48hrs of contest start/time, or from when you receive your frag.
    4. Each contestant must post a picture each month by the 10th.
    5. All frags must remain on original plug until the end of the contest
    6. Each contestant must post a final picture to be counted by the deadline of the Saturday before Reefed
    7. Scchase is final judge in deciding Head or Baby in pictures if needed of zoas and responsible for any weighing or discrepancies at Reefed.
    8. Grow time will be from the delivery of frags at the 2017 Coral Extravaganza to Reefed.
    9. If your frag melts, post up so we know you're out. Maybe the winner will frag you a head
    10. If your frag comes off it's plug, you can re-attach, but you must post up additional picture once re-attached within 48 hours.
    11. Frags can be moved within your tank at your discretion. Just be prepared to share what worked in the end.
    12. Contestants not following the rules may be disqualified. Let's not have to use this!
    13. Winner(s) will split pot evenly in the event of a tie that cannot be resolved, currently unknown.
    14. Definitions: Baby is considered any closed polyp, or any where you cannot see face and developed skirt in the same photo. Head is considered any polyp where a face and skirt is easily visible.

    Any frag group from the above list with a minimum of 6 participants will be cut and the contest will run

    All frags must remain on initial frag plug for the duration of the contest. All Zoa frags will start as single polyps which I will cut 2 weeks before the winter event. Zoa frags will be measured by 1 polyp counts 2 overall colony size 3 tie breaker to be judged on overall coral and aesthetics (hope it doesn't come to this). Each participant must post monthly photos of their frags with a ruler indicating size to remain eligible for prizes these photos will be due on the 10th of each month and the final photo will be due the week before Reefed. Any potential ties and final judging as needed will be conducted at Reefed and any participant that will need to bring their frag/s to Reefed will be notified in the week prior to the event. Each contest that runs will have a thread created for pictures.

    All frags are to be picked up at the December meeting and the deadline for any pickups will be Jan 6th to be considered for the grow out contest, frags not picked up by then can still be received but will not be eligible for the prize pool.

    This contest still has four available slots but is set to run even if they do not fill.

    Please send Payments for this contest to scchase7@gmail.com or pay cash at the 2017 Coral Extravaganza. I will update this post as people have paid and post final prize pool following the official start of the contest. Pics of frags will be available later this week.

    I lost one of my original polyps due to it coming off the plug I’ve found it a few different times when I was in a rush so idk if it’s lost or in a corner. Either way I haven’t it got it back on the plug so I’ll take a loss for that polyp but the original one does have a baby so 2 polyps pretty much.
