    I think this will be a great learning experience. I've always been curious on what percentage of frags from the same mother colony actually survive.....

    Depends on the coral and how it was fragged. Sometimes you can frag a coral perfectly without cutting fleshy tissue and the coral will still die! Some corals can be cut right down the middle of their polyp and survive.

    I have a feeling these frags are going to be just fine.

    Big thanks to Mike for organizing this event and handling the pickup up my frag today.

    Just finished acclimating and dipping him and introduced him to our display:

    Wpeterson yours is starting to gain more colors.

    Cant wait to see these guys grow and color up. Give it some time.

    A picture is not required for March.
    You will need a picture by april 30th though.


    Some of those frags don't look as expanded as they should be but that is okay. They're a little stressed from dipping and will "poof" up nicely in a couple days. I'm excited to see who wins and the resulting colors of these acans.

    Man y'all look like your frags are gonna start popping out new head any time. I got a reverse mounting ring for my 50mm so hopefully I can get a couple nice shots of mine.

    Good luck

    I use lens extenders on my 15-55mm stock lens for macro shots.

    Swayd - It'll be fine we don't need professional pictures haha. Just a picture showing your frag and how many polyps/heads.:cool:

    Here's an ugly overhead pic of mine. I got bold and mounted it yesterday, so it's not looking as "full" as it was... Hopefully in another day or so. Despite the poor pic, it's really quite pretty.

    Hey all

    Just a friendly reminder you need to post a picture for April. You have until april 30

    @wpeterson @jctse @Prisonfood53 @boun11 @Finnaddict @jonmos75

    Y'all still need a picture for April. To upload a picture click "upload a file". No need to host it on another website.
