Above is the list, there is one spot open until the end of the week.
Feederboy/Bruce and Fishface/Will, I just need to catch up with you to get the specimines to you.

Next Sunday will need to be the cut-off if we are going to run a fair contest.

I handed out progress tracking submission forms but didn’t not think it veryone got them. If you didn’t get one I can email one to you or get it to you some other way.
Looks like this:

Let’s try to commit to checking in every two weeks on progress with pictures and comments.
This can be here or on the Facebook page/discussion

Funny thing is i have a frag of those same zoas Donavon gave me before and its like 25 polyps…lol

This really sucks guys, I have two more of the original frags left and the colony is doing well, well over 100 polyps.

Maybe they are weak as only two polyps, then changing tank parameters…

At least a few people are having success.

If We ever do this again maybe start with four polyps for better initial success

**I still have the ones we did a couple years ago and have about 100 pylops and the new frags were put in that tank and they did not make it. **don’t know why?
