    I’ve got myself plus 2-3 others in my area. What do we each need to do up front? I will send payment for everyone and we’re splitting shipping.

    Nice looking plays! Should be a fun grow out! I might join if there's still spots this weekend, gotta check the cash situation first. It's been a while since I got any zoanthids or palys as I focus more on sps these days.

    Anyone in Southern California, preferable costal or southern Orange County want to go in on shipping?

    So logistically I think the easiest way to do that is to have 1 person go through with the purchase of the 2-3 frags plus shipping, and then have the other people pay back the buyer for shipping. You'll have to coordinate shipping with the other people and find a way to meet and get the frags. @Legendary Corals does this sound good to you?

    Make sure everyone has a reef2reef account so they can post their entries every month once the contest starts. They also need to fill out the form so I can keep track of everyone. At the end of the form is the link to purchase the coral.

    Edit: Nevermind. I found the option. You may wanna check your website though, it shows only the very top of the letters for local pickup in the drop down menu.

    Any chance for local pickup?

    But at the end of the form, only one of us (me) is actually purchasing. Do the other three just stop short of purchasing? I’ll coordinate these guys getting the frags.

    I have never done a grow out contest before but because they are usually acros which isn't really my thing. Zoa and Palys on the other hand that my jam. How many do we need for it to qualify as an actual contest?

    Yep I think that is the best way, just add 2-3 or however many of the frags are being split into the cart.

    You mean how many participants? The more the better. :) I didn't have a minimum number in mind, but I suppose it is up to Legendary Corals to decide what # makes it worth it. I am just organizing and keeping track of the results, whether it's 3 contestants or 30.

    Unfortunately it's a bug on the site we're using, where the font inside is too large.

    I already have these, but I’m gonna jump in on this growout contest just as a comparative test to gauge how optimal my system is in relation to you all who will be competing for the grand prize...
    ftr, I do not want the grand prize, or any accolades really; this is simply for me.

    When will you guys cut polyps?
    Wanna make sure I cut mine on the same day...

    Most likely the beginning of next week. We'll be shipping out fully healed polyps. :)
