For those in the acan growout please post up your pictures in this thread until the site goes back up. :) I don't have a list at this point. I will address this once we get the original thread back.

But let's keep it going.

It pains me to say this, but the original thread won't be coming back. You should probably start thinking of a different way to resume the grow-out.

Google has a pretty good cache too, here is the update with the rules and original head counts

Contestants this is the official thread to post your entries! If you post your entry in another thread it will not count.


Contest begins July 1st!You have a week before and a week after to post up your picture.


This competition will run 6 months!

Ground Rules:

The goal of this competition is to be both educational and fun. I am hopeful the winners will be able to share their "secrets" and truly see how different lighting, supplements, dosing, and tank parameters can make a difference in growth.

Rules and Guidelines for SPS GOC

1. Your first post must include a quick writeup of your system in the competition thread. Including tank size, flow, lighting, placement of the frag, frag measurement, equipment (ie calcium reactor, dosing, etc), feeding regiment, etc.

2. You will be required to post photo updates. The contest will start July 1st. You will be required to post a photo update once a month. I will remind you of this when the time is soon to post. I know life gets busy and people go out of town so you have a 2 week window to post.You will have 7 days before and after the first of the month to post your update. If you do not post within the allotted time frame you will be disqualified.

3. Please no cheating. This competition is meant to be fun and for bragging rights. Cheaters will be disqualified and banned from any future competitions(PEDS were not used for Frankenfrag).

4. The frags must remain on the original plug. You may modify the plug if needed example cutting off the stem for placement. You may place the frag anywhere you want in your tank and you may move it to a different spot during the competition but you cannot move it to a new tank as the point is to see how the frag does over time in different systems.

5. Initial photos of frags need to have a top down as well as side shot so we can all see the frag and what you are starting with. No hiding acan heads in your photos.

Not following the rules will cause you to be disqualified, I know that sounds harsh but it is out of fairness to the rest of the group. Remember a lot can happen in 6 months. During the last growout many were DQ'd due to not posting. It's really simple. JUST DO IT.

Length of competition:

The competition will run for 6 months. This will give us enough time for the frag to grow. A lot can happen in 6 months and a lot of people could drop out, so if you are persistent, you have a chance to win the grand prize. This will give EVERYONE the same advantage\disadvantage with acclimation and so on. Pictures will be required frequently for updates. Final post will be January 1st 2015 for the winner.


Judging a winner:

Should be pretty straight forward this growout. The most polyps at the end wins. This will be based off a percentage of growth from the beginning due to not all frags being exactly the same.

Grand Prize is a nice Acan package from Jeff at Cuttlefish and Corals


Updates will be posted in the first thread so check back frequently

Anyone know when we get a new grow out contest? I was not setup when this one started. So if you know when a new contest will start let me know.

Likely after the first of the year. It's too confusing with multiple growouts on the site from what has happened in the past. That being said we will see what happens with the site.

For those that are in this growout consider this month a bye month. We will pick it back up in October once I am able to reach out to those still in the contest. I will dig through my paypal account for email addresses this weekend if the site isn't up by then.

I provided my August update on time and shouldn't be listed DQ'ed... unless there was something I missed. Let me know if I screwed up, otherwise I will provide my October update with the rest of the bunch. Username on PNWMAS is Dragon.

I know this is a bye month, but I figured I would post anyway.
Up to 3 full heads, 5 babies, and 1 additional head that looks like it is splitting. :heh:

I'm not sure who all it was but there was one or two that didn't follow the rules even though a picture was posted. Not sure if that was you or not but I was very careful on booting people.

I believe I followed all the rules. My photos weren't the best, but here are the shots I posted:

And I believe I had 2 full heads, two 3/4 heads and two babies

Let me know if I did something wrong or if it was an oversight. Thanks!
