DC SPS grow out tracking thread

Recommended Posts

This thread will be used to track progress thru out the contest. 

Participants must post monthly pics with a ruler showing the measurement of its current size. Pictures are due by the 7th of each month. First photo is due by June  7th. 

The winning frag will be the frag with the most growth at the end of the 6 months. BOD has the right to alter these rules as we see fit. 

Contest will end 12/7/2018. Winner will receive a $100 gift card to Diablo Corals. Good luck everyone. 

 

Thanks 

 

By the way the date for start was altered due to the trouble with posting to either Tapatalk and the NVR Forum. Everyone got a freebee pass for the month of May. Please get in your pic with the ruler before June 7th. Any late entry after June 7th will have to use the one time only freebee pass. Good luck

You can count me out. I'm just not interested in this coral at all. It looks terrible. 

 

On another note. I have 20 big chunks of Miami hurricane chalice if the club wants to start another grow out soon.

Come on bro. Give it some time to settle in. Mine looks pretty rough also. I did a heavy dip ad it was not happy.

this was after. the second picture it is mounted in the tank without the plug. only a couple nubs died back from falling and sitting on a chalice. it is starting to get its colors back. it is mounted near a Fox Flame, curious to see how these two will compare color wise. the fox flame is growing crazy fast, so hopefully the DC Purple rain will as well.

Dang. Had a horrible time trying to get a pic. First tried with a clear ruler. That failed miserably. Had to bust out the tape measure. 

Little less then 3/4”
