Regarding rule 2-B, what are the questions about the conditions of the system?

At the meeting you were discussing rule 3-A. Do we still have to keep it on a plug or can it be removed to be placed on rock work?

I think tank parameters would be the more common phrase. If you tested we just want to know what your results were.

3a has been changed. If you want to remove it from the plug then you need to take post a picture of the frag on the plug/disk and then another picture that shows the frag in its entirety immediate after it is placed in its new home.

What should the parameters we need to post be?

To me, the more important parameters would be alkalinity, flow, lighting (photoperiod/LED settings or bulb selection), calcium, nitrate and phosphate.

Yeah we're going to ask for that information as well but not weekly.

On the 15th will be a good opportunity for everyone to fill in the blanks that they couldn't answer at the meeting. I will post the information we have before the 15th so we can see what's missing.
