Well, been a fun contest. Definitely not a winner. Has been a pretty slow grower for me,
but I'm really happy to be part of the "still kickin'" club!

Actually... Now that I think of it, all of my tabling acros have been very slow growing. First tank, so it's probably something I'm missing.
Not all acros are going slow though... Here's my TGC orange creamsicle in the same timeframe.

Terrible second pic, but you get the idea...

Getting close to the end............
Almost as exciting as the start.
Every one had visions of being the best and taking the prize home.
We're coming up to the moment of truth now though.
A lot of people dropped out, but a lot of of people did real good.
I'm happy with mine. Everyone that made it to the end should also be happy.
Not posting my final pic yet though.......... I have till the 21st to do so.

Three days isn't going to make it or break it at this point.
So here it is, final 365 pics and one of the little bugger when I received it one year ago.
Best of luck to everyone, it's up to Adam from here.
I will say from what I've seen mine is the only one growing the way it should be.
Maybe that will earn me some brownie points?

Here's my final photo dump. So sad to see it end. But all of the finalists are winners for ending up with a gorgeous coral.

It's been fun, guys!! I'll revisit this thread from time to time to post future growth shots. In my experience, after one year is when acros seem to take off.

Hey everyone, sticks look great! Make sure to get your one year post in before/on the day that you received your coral last year. I will post a list of people who made it to the end without getting disqualified once all submissions are in, and the list with growth progression pictures will be sent to Adam for judging in May. I want to thank each of you again for keeping up with monthly entries even when I didn't have time to check in. Hoping we can have a great finish to this contest!

Thanks for managing this! I love seeing all of the variations in growth patterns with everyone’s pieces.
I agree with KattKrazie, I think it will be cool if we all continue to post updates over the next year. I think we’ll see some pretty awesome colonies. I know my growth has really started to kick in so I can’t wait to see it a few months from now.

Hey guys.

amazing stuff! we must be getting close to the end here. we'll have to put a comprehensive list together of the top 5-10 contenders or so and put it to a vote.

what do you guys say?
That sounds like a plan Adam.

@Scdell thatd be soo cool to just keep it rolling with a new frag for those that survived!!!
Make it two contests. One for the ones that made it to the end and one for the ones that didn't.
Give the ones with unfortunate circumstances another chance.
Its been a year and it's hard when it's over. We all followed along pretty well. It's been a great group. But, everything comes to an end. It's been fun and that's what it was supposed to be.
I'm glad I was in this. Thanks to everyone for making it what it was. We all have a little bond with each other because of this and some great memories. Good stuff!!!

Agree it was fun. I found it difficult to continue with quality smack talk after mine took that dive into the staghorn, but it has been great to see these pieces blossom and color.

I still have a few weeks left to post. But here’s my final pic. I’ve enjoyed the competition except for taking pictures with a ruler. I’m just happy I didn’t drop my phone in the water. One handed pics with the ruler in the other hand are tough. I did slap the Bonfire with the ruler one final time for the pic. It’s tradition at this point.

Thanks to everyone who entered and made it interesting. I enjoyed seeing everyone’s progress.
