I didn't see anywhere in the rules about asking how they were grown in. ie; alk, par, ect...
Can/could we get details on this information? I understand if you can't give them out... It is a contest.

? I don't understand that q. Lol.
Like u want ppl to post their parameters with the pics?!

LOL, like I said, it's is a contest.
But, I don't know if battle coral uses halides, led, ect.. It would be helpful, but again, it is a contest.

Edit: I wasn't asking about people in the contest giving parameters.

@lynn.reef.nerd Just a thought, maybe post an example submission so people can copy and paste to keep it more uniform. It may make it easier for you in the end.

A good place to get a ruler is Hobby Lobby. They have pretty good ones in the sewing section for a reasonable price.

Hello,
It's been a while since I've been involved in a grow out contest. What is the process for purchasing our frags? I'm guessing that it's going to take a while for Adam to cut and mount all of these frags.
Adam will contact you with details. I know he finished cutting the 40 pieces of Blood bank and is waiting for them to heal. He will send them all out and declare a start date.

Ok guys. Now that the list for the blood bank has been finalized, you’ll here from me through private message right here on reef2reef with sone simple instructions on how to go about getting your contest frag, and sone shipping details.

I’ll go down the list starting at the top, so if you don’t hear from me by the end of the week, please shoot me an email

Otherwise you’ll be hearing from me soon!

The Bank frags were cut this weekend so I imagine we’ll probably start shipping them out in about 3 weeks. We’ll go over all of that through email for sure.
