Contestants please answer the questions and post a new picture as soon as you can. Thank you to all who participated. I apologize for not getting to the  table as I had desired. We are still trying to make all the information available for educational purposes. For all of you who still have a living frag and have posted at all the check-ins, I will be contacting you all individually after you post for measurement of your frag.

1. Please post a current picture of your frag.

2. Have you tested your water recently? (i.e. calcium, alkalinity, magnesium, nitrate, phosphate, nitrite, ammonia, salinity, etc.)
For each test completed please share your results. (If tested multiple times, please share
the date you tested and what your results were.

Yes, I'm a Pharmacist.
No, the blue lights at my house are not growing "pharmaceuticals"...

Maybe not the place for it but also any feedback on the next Frag Contest would be great.

I doubt I win anything. My frag only grew mm's and it is tough to put a ruler to it with the angles it grew.
And with my bicolor blenny eating this coral and my skunk cleaner stealing all its food, it could have done better.
Also, I haven't done a water change in a long time and I know I can take better care of my tank.
I'll try to do some water testing and put the results here.
Let me know if you have any questions.

This picture is from 2/11. It is with the flash so it will look like it does in natural light.

Where it all began.

Where it has come and still alive.

Been fighting some algaes. Finally determined it's my rodi unit. The tds meters says 0 but 2 hand held tds checkers are saying over 90 tds. Makes me feel better knowing what it is and now a simple fix for my 6 stages. Nevertheless it grew and kept color. I'm happy with it although watch out for what ever is next on the grow out.
It's been fun what's next

Po4 - 0.05
SG - 1.026
Mg - 1400
Ca - 410
KH - 9.0

2/19/17
Po4 - 0.07
SG - 1.026
Mg - 1340
Ca - 400
KH - 9.0

Something has upset it the last few weeks and caused it to pale out a bit on top.  It's still fat and growing all around the edges.  I'm moving it to a slightly lower light area of the tank to see if that's the problem.

This whole thing has been tons of fun.  I can't wait until the next one.  Smile

Check out this little video I put together...

It's roughly one image a day for the entire Grow Out period (minus a couple gaps due to holidays.)  Please forgive the quality, this was my first time putting something like this together and it was quite the learning experience.  Wink

Did I miss an announcement or message, or did this fizzle out?
