It’s still on my frag rack, but I will mount it on the rocks very soon. The frag is fully encrusted, got new branches, and has some crazy colors! Nice PE too.

Sorry about the dirty glass lol

A reminder to those who have not submitted their May picture yet, you have until the 31st, so make sure to get it in on time. You can miss one month of entries, but that’s it.

Sorry if the above sentences came off as harsh, I just want to make sure that everyone has a chance at competing for the prize. Also, I don’t about everyone else, but I’m thoroughly enjoying everyone’s pictures and discussion about this contest. Seems like a great group to me!
Good luck everyone!

Read 'em and weep boys and girls. Queue the victory music. Can we just call the contest over now?

The HGH steroid baths are really working. Every muscle is sprouting muscles. I am going to move my scrawny little Homewrecker over next to this thing.

Just talking trash while I can. I had to triple check that it is the same coral as I have a few POTO pieces nearby that have similar colors and shape. All my POTOs have dark plugs though. And they are much smaller than Adam's stuff.

Never give up. Every tank is just one boneheaded, beer-soaked mistake away from total collapse.

Didn’t you know that your coral must pass a drug test prior to any pictures. And no, you can’t say it was in an ointment given to you by a friend and you didn’t know what was in it.;Happy

Still can't believe @BranchingHammer allowed a professional to get in on our amateur tournament.

Branch?!?! Branch!?!? Are you seeing this?

You all gave up your amateur status a long time ago! Freakin' digital calipers, what the heck?!... ;Joyful

They aren't terribly suitable for this particular purpose, but they are a must have for me. I can hardly see/count 1/8ths much less 16ths of anything anymore. I use it all the time.

Kinda like GPS now. Once you have it, you wonder how you ever managed without it.

My display tank is, shall we say, in a transitional state right now. Just trying to be patient with it while it recovers from my wrecking ball. It got super shady. Won't be long though. Walt Disney says the water is fine. A pic from before demolition. I have the space now but the DT is nutrient noisy still.
