    Colony is doing well, growing and encrusting further on the rock it's mounted on. The shaded region on the front/base seems to be growing back polyps after the flame angel nibbled on it a month ago:

    Still alive, less polyp extension due to harassment from my flame angel I suspect:

    Well....I hate to say it but I think I am out of this one as I placed it on my rock work and was holding its color but not very many polyps and then it started to loose it coloring (not sure if it didn't like the direct flow of the WAV pumps, but other SPS have thrived with the WAVs in the same location) I dis mounted it a week ago and placed in a different spot in the tank so it wouldn't direct flow but I think it was too late when I moved it as I have not seen it get any better.... :(...I could post a Oct picture just in case it gets better, but I am not having very much hope....bummer

    Good luck to the last two standing
    @Geneva & @wpeterson

    I would love a frag after the competition is over....:D

    Total bummer - sorry to hear this! You can definitely have a frag of this if mine continues to grow. I think there are a lot of these frags out there - folks just got disqualified because they didn't submit photos in time and not because frag didn't make it.
