    This is to announce the 2018 Summer grow out contests.
    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 the Coral Extravaganza
    7. Scchase is final judge in deciding Head or Baby in pictures if needed of zoas and responsible for any weighing or desrcepencies at Reefed.
    8. Grow time will be from the delivery of frags at the 2018 Reefed to the Winter Extravaganza in Late November to December.
    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, first 4 corals to get to 6 will be the contests to 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 3 weeks before the Spring event, all Acro frags will be 3/4-1" same cut schedule. 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). Acros will be measured on overall growth if a clear winner is not evident then we will go buy weight of frag to be measured at the Coral Extravaganza. 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 beforethe Coral Extravaganza . Any potential ties and final judging as needed will be conducted at the Coral Extravaganzaand any participant that will need to bring their frag/s to the Coral Extravaganza 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 April 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.

    Anyone interested in any of the above grow out competitions please respond to this post with all that you would like to participate in. Available prizes for each running contest will be contingent on number of entries received.

    Picked mine up two days ago. Such little heads, fell off the rack and got a mouthful of sand.

    Glued mine down to a frag plug because it was getting knocked off the frag rack. Here is the updated photo.
