    It is in a new spot with a new tank and different flow. It is at optimal lighting and optimal flow at this point, but what hasn't been optimal was the previous tank where it got flipped upside down and afterwards when it was placed into a tupperware bowl for 2 days.

    Lower right is 20" away from the T5 lights and right under the powerhead. I will keep him here until I get the rocks re-assembled and I can find a more permanent spot. When it was growing good it was 6" away from the light under medium flow. This is about where it is now, however it is not directly under the light like before.

    Geez... I shouldn't have said anything. Damm power in the tank went off last night at 11pm and found it this morning at 70 degrees with some water overflowing into my cabinet. If the undata survives I can let everyone know what conditions they will survive under.

    Update: Really spreading out along the base now, of course, not as fast as I want it to!

    Frag is still located towards the top of the tank.

    Mine was dormant for a long time but has finally decided to put on some growth in these last couple of weeks. Hopefully the trend continues.

    Well I think I have gotten a little bit of growth. Kinda strange though as I got a purple haze from Sazama at the same time and it is growing like a weed and they sit right next to each other.

    Here is when I first got it.

    Interesting growth patterns. Dreamer's is growing into a disk, Jagermeister's grew straight down and out and mine grew out with bumps on the side.

    Yeah, when is the weigh-in? The official rules say it ends May 25. Does that mean we have to be at the DG meeting this Thursday? It's far as hell and I need to know if we need to be there.

    Think the may deadline was pushed back 3 months for a complete 6 month grow out. Hurra, wicked?

    I believe when I talked to wicked at the DBTC meeting, I think we had talked about doing the full 6 month growout. It gives everyone a better chance, and actually gives the frags time to "growout." But if anything has changed wicked would know.
