    This is the official start of the new @Battlecorals growout contest. The thread will be renamed after we pick a piece. I've talked to Adam and he has quite a few nice pieces to choose from. I put a poll at the top of the thread. Please vote if you are interested in being part of the contest. Your vote matters! After the poll closes I'll start taking names for the contest. That will give me and Adam time to get a hard number of contestants. I have the poll closing at 5:00pm est on Thursday evening!!!
    Be on the lookout for the thread title to change with the winning piece!

    The cost will be $100 to enter:
    $35 for Frag
    $45 for shipping
    $20 for contest money

    Good thing I copied @bubbaque growout setup! (Only if it were that simple) Maybe I won't let this one get knocked off into the sand twice in the first month!

    Is there a list yet of who's in? Or are you all doing first to pay? I didn't want anything to do with it when Thecamaroshow, errr "stickboy" was running it, but now I'd be in. If others are ahead of me, no worries!

    Oh and BC Bliss looks dope!

    I’m pretty new to the reefing world, but I’d definitely love to see how my set up would stack up against some of you more experienced reefers!
