Unofficially, I am up to five heads. How is everyone else doing?
5 or 6 here. I'd have to get em to close up to see if the new ones opened yet. Definite 5 though.
6 and a baby

I have six full and a few bulbs starting. I've added a mini skimmer, a few new fish, and some other corals. I am dosing reef energy and reef chili every few days.
3 here. Started with 1. Can see the little ones off to the sides. Had to move to get a pic and they closed but the polyps are visible.
Those chaos look good.
Still 6p new growth is starting to mat out again thoufh
Yours are nice and spread out. My polyps are all clustered real close.
That's a recent development. I need to try cutting the plug to flatten it out and mount it to rubble.
Currently at 5 total. Picture taking skills still terrible. Had a little outbreak of hair algae in the last couple of weeks.
I have been using a homemade macro algae reactor to combat green hair and it has been working well.
2 polyps still, crappy picture because I'm currently running lights out to try to control a cyano outbreak. Cut them off the original plug and glued them to a piece of dry rock
Same here. I think my issue is I took too much out at once when I cleaned it. At least thats my theory. I don't feed any more than I was... if anything less.
Here's my photo! Three open polyps and two nubs
Last day to get your photos in to stay in the competition..
6 in picture but 7 in total I'll have to move the frag over slightly to get the 7th to open back up for next month.
