    Lets have a grow out contest! Here is what we are going to do....... For all you lucky people that came to the meeting the other night, pick out a coral, take a picture and post it here, then update it once in a while. In two months, we are going to have a cookout at Frost's house for our June meeting, Him and I have not set an exact date yet....but we will. Who ever wins will get a $50.00 gift certificate to spend there. You will need to be present to win. You all know he has some nice stuff to pick from ! The winner will be picked by vote at the cookout, by your fellow club members. And......for all you members that missed the FREE coral give away......yes, you can get in on this too ! Same rules. Buy, trade or make your own frag, take a pic, and post it ! We are talking a cool coral, from a zoa to a stick...,,,no kenya trees or xenia !
    Lol ! Remember, the vote will be by other members, so you have to impress them....not me ! Make it a cool one, and win. See you at the cookout!

    Here is my submission. Its a stylo about a half inch long. I choose this because its just a grow out contest, not the coolest coral, and In 2 months it will be easy to tell the difference. Plus, i really dont have anything else lol! I was locked out of the building while you guys were doing the zoas and my chalice and candy cane didnt make it. Yet.

    That stylo is my first sps so i dont know what to expect. I know i have high nitrates and phos but the bigger piece i have is doing great. All the polyps are out, i thought sps need low nutrient. On another note, both of my hydra 52 lights came in!n You guys shall fear me once i get them installed!!

    Wow, some of us are a little more serious about this grow out contest, lol.

    Seriously though, I can't wait to see the results once you get them set-up and dialed in.

    I was just trying to be funny. I doubt they will have any effect on the coral for this contest because the hanging kit is not scheduled to get to me until the 12th and then i cant even install it until i have a free weekend. Once its installed the coral need to aclimate to the new light which can take weeks before i can turn the intensity up. So once the contest ends is prolly when the lights will be running at where they should be.

    I knew you were being funny, was just playing along. Adding another variable to tinker with is not going to be all that helpful. lol. Still should be awesome when you get them dialed in. Those lights are fantastic.
