I may have replied to those threads once or twice
I am in as well.
oh-oh, what new grow out contest?
You guys please recheck the thread and PM me.
I've got to try a new one lol my snipers is growing too slow. I may drop it in bubbas tank for a few months hahahaha
I made it in as well. Landed in the Bliss pool myself. Looking forward to it!
Gorgeous color. I haven't seen that on mine at all, not sure I've seen it in others. Beautiful.
p.s. I copy-n-pasted your official post over in into the discussion thread
Well the rules say I can do anything to help my frag grow. I took everyones advice about dumping a ton of chemicals in the tank at once such as adding lots more salt, increase the lighting, and well so far I can't tell if its helped my frag grow, but it made my tank grow!
Lots of work to do still!
Thanks @HolisticBear ! Yea the teals are on almost all of the tips. Pretty cool tbh. I hope I get a “random coloration” award after the growout since its not growing as fast as everybody elses lol
Hey guys - I'm not in the contest, but I've shared mine here a few times. Just wanted to post an update since I hit the one year mark last week since receiving the frag from BC. Mine went through a bleaching event and an alk swing in October that caused it to lose flesh off the branches. One tough coral.
So I’m noticing that my snipes is going green. Bright green! After some damage from AEFW but coming back strong. Anyone else’s going green?
My VHO’s have died and I can’t find them anymore. Anyone which spectrums during this growout? How did the frag react? I think I’m going to all Blue pluses.
I didn't have an issue switching t5 bulb spectrum and blue plus are great bulbs, imo. Not sure on VHO. I haven't used those in probably 12 years now.
I also switched from led/t5 hybrid to mh only then to mh/Kessil hybrid without an issue. Probably doesn't answer your question, but I hope it helps.
Just added a blue+ and coral+ T5 retro fit and doing great.
Pretty sure green means its in the healing process, so that's a good thing!
Consider me in! I had a few issues when I had to change my Nitrate reactor media, used a different product, overused carbohydrates and Snipers did die to make it short ugh....
However back in excessive growth now, better then ever before so what are we growing next ??????
Did you make it in? The new contest seemed to explode out the gate and it was a bit confusing with the moderator change. @Fishfinder put in alot of work to make it happen in the end.
Amazing dude. Looks awesome. Well done. Makes it clear how far behind I am It's almost enough to make me test enough to keep my alk higher
do you run low alk?
Jeeeez these updated pics! Mine is just stagnant now, no branching, just additional encrusting.
