Gonna post mine incase I forget. First time doing this competition so let me know if I'm missing anything.

The frag is right at 1" and has already encrusted the top face of the plug. Since it's already encrusted, I've clipped the stem and glued it to the spot I have made for it - front and center of my R250.

Sharing a close up. I hope it stays happy.

From the 4 milli frags I have tried (2 survived, 2 dead). They all seemed happy at first but clam up after a couple days. Good to see the PE, but fingers crossed.

I am so excited for this contest!! I have never kept SPS though so I am a little nervous I will be the first one out. But determined to give it my best shot!
You've got this! I'm still not sure if my tank is 100% ready for acros. I haven't killed any in a couple of weeks...so I'm doing better than previous attempts. I added some more rock in the sump for surface area for bacteria to grow. This is a barebottom system with minimal rock in the display itself. Not sure if that's gonna help since it's only been a week, but I figure it can't hurt.

I'm in the same boat. My best with an acro was a green tip birds nest. This time around I've been able to keep a few acros from dying.

Mine has also encrusted the plug, which I am very happy with. When I left tonight for work, I started to see some extension of the polyps, Hoping tomorrow will be the coming out party!! Super stoked to see what this one turns into. Mine is in a 375 gallon display, 700 total gallon system. I just recently really started seeing positive signs that I am on the right road. Just need to keep moving that direction.

Good luck all!!

Hey everyone! here is my frag entry photo. Currently at the 1 inch mark. It will be going into a 265 g system. Currently place about the midpoint of the aquarium but will move it up as time passes. I clipped the bottom of the frag plug and mounted it on a removable disc I made that allows me to move it around my rock scape as I please.
