This thread is for pictures only! There is a discussion thread where we can discuss anything related to the contest. Discussion thread ——-> https://www.reef2reef.com/threads/battlecorals-snipes-blue-discussion-thread.435192/

Rules:
1. Must use a ruler on all submitted entries. The ruler must be kept at the same spot each time a measurement is taken.

2. Your entry pic must be submitted within 3 days of receiving your frag.

3. You will be allowed to miss 2 entries for the year the contest is ran. A picture must be submitted for each month of the contest. The picture must be submitted on time and by the last day of each month. If you submit a day late, it's counted as one of your missed entries. On your 3rd missed entry you will be disqualified. If you think you will be busy at the end of the month, then submit it early. This allows me to keep track of entries.

4.You must submit your final picture on the day you received it 12 months later and not at the end of the final month. Example: If you received your frag August 25, you must your final pic on or before August 25th and not on the last day of the month.

5. You are allowed to do and use anything you feel will get your frag to grow.

You can remove your frag from the plug and mount it if you would like.

Judging will be handled by Adam and he will decide the winner.

There is two prizes being awarded.
1st place will win a $660 battlebox
2nd place will win a $300 battlebox

Let's all have fun and grow some coral!

If you have questions please let me know in the discussion thread and not this one.

First entry - hit my tank on 8/8/18. This shipment was delayed for an extra day due to a FedEx screwup, that's why two of the frags RTN'd (should have cropped those out), but so far the sniper's is hanging in there.

Here is a shot of the other side of the frag showing that there is a pretty good-sized branch already (I had to shoot it from the 'front' to make sure the ruler dimensions would show up against the white background.

Mounted in the tank. For consistency, I’m resting the ruler on the rock right next to the frag.
