Well, I'm out.....lost most of my SPS after coming back from Vacation and the Bonfire was one of them. Po4 bottomed out apparently and I came back to a Dino outbreak that smothered most of my sticks. Only my Montipora Digitata survived. Back to the SPS drawing board. Ugh
Argh, sorry. It's been a few years but I had the same thing happen. My fault. I left behind old, faulty feeding instructions.

I'm almost a week late! I'm so sorry, it will not happen again. I'm not even going to give an excuse, I just forgot xD

So here's the little guy. He's grown about .25" and has encrusted over the edges of the plug! Sorry for the weird mounting angle, I should have thought that through better.
I'm excited to watch another month go by! IMG_2374.JPG

This is why you're allowed 1 missed month. Good luck with remembering the next 11 ;)

June 22 update:
moved higher in the tank, hopefully next month it will be in its final placement, Encrusted more but no noticeable growth upwards, maybe a little wider. Polyp extension is good. If you look close there is some tissue loss, unfortunate overspray from H2O2 to get rid of some algae growing on a frag adjacent…lesson learned. I’m not worried but thought I would share for transparency-sake! Best of luck everyone!
 

Do you have a battery backup plan in place?
