While we're waiting on our contest frags, does anyone else in the contest have one that they are "practicing" with? Here's mine with roughly two months of growth. It's definitely a looker and gets really thick while encrusting. Might have to give this frag to a friend since the spot seems to be ideal.

Since there are so many people on the waiting list that want to participate, once I am declared the winner, I will be happy to frag out another 40 frags to do it all again. Yes, you heard it, that was smack talk.
When you see my frag, yours will be described as having a nice personality. ;Happy;)

LOL, sorry, not in, my new tank isn't even wet yet. Maybe next time I will give you some competition. ;)

It'd be cool to hear everyone's system setups and plans for the grow out. I'll be the guinea pig...
Tank - 100 gallon 4' x 24" x 20"...been up since March 2019
Lights - two xr15 gr pros with t5 hybrid - 2 blue plus, 1 actinic, 1 coral plus
Flow - two gyres on sides and two MP40s on the back
Sand - Yes
Filtration- filter socks, skimmer, refugium
AWC DOS around 1% daily
Currently dosing all for reef and soda ash to maintain parameters (odd combination but worked so far)
Planned Par - around 280. Imma mount the frag and let her be
Plans - keep soda lime replenished and nutrients up! Also watch the pros and learn a little something.
