    This is the thread where everyone is welcome to discuss contest progress, share tank parameters, coral placement, and tips and tricks relevant to the Vivid's Rainbow Acropora Grow Out Contest.

    The official entry thread is here:
    https://www.reef2reef.com/threads/b...w-out-contest-official-entries-thread.348106/

    You must post entries in that thread for them to count! But you can also share them here and discuss. :)

    Of course, nobody has to share any secrets if they don't want to. But the other thread was already pretty long so I figured it would be good to start another without all of the contest organization chat to wade through.

    I'm sad, I was suppose to receive my frag this morning but some how it got held up Tennessee. FedEx now says I will receive the frag tomorrow. I hope it's still alive after being in transit for two days. ;Nailbiting

    I should be getting mine shortly.

    It was actually supposed to be here by 9:00 am, but the shipment center doesn’t have it yet, and all fedex has told me is it will be here by 4:30 pm. ;Bored

    Hoping it shows up soon!

    Got it in the tank colors faded some but this coral is notorious for browning when fragged sitting at an inch and an 1/8 with 4 shoots
