Featuring BAR's Semi-Rainbow Acan Grow-out Contest I'm proud to introduce BAR's first coral grow-out contest for 2015. Let's start this off with some awesome rainbow acan lord frags from California Reef Co. in Fremont. This contest is a friendly competition to see whose tank and husbandry techniques can grow corals the fastest. The person with the most growth at the end of the contest will win a prize. Let's rock and roll! The Coral This is a special Lord Acan which wants to be a rainbow acan. It is suppose to gain a green star around the mouth and green around the rim. I've personally had this specific acan before and it quickly gained its "green star" and splotching in about two weeks in my tank. Acans as you may know are notorious for changing colors depending on conditions mostly light intensity/range. Here's a WYSIWYG picture of one of the frags. See the little bit of green streaks? This is the same acan in the SPS Display Tank at California Reef Co. Swing by and take a look Here's a crappy picture of this acan in a nice tank. (click) Green star, yellow, orange, green rim and all! How does this contest work? The cost to participate is 10$. Each participant gets 1 frag of this coral. The first 10 members to post their intent in thread will be allowed to participate in the competition After I confirm your participation, I will require you to send 10$ to our paypal account firstname.lastname@example.org as a "gift". We only have 10 frags available. All frags are single polyp. This grow out contest will last 6 months from the start date. Every month you must post 1 picture of the frag showing the amount of polyps. At the end of the contest, the person with the most polyps or heads wins the contest. Make arrangements with @Enderturtle to pick up your frags (in San Mateo) Do what you need to do to make this thing grow! Prize A 50$ Gift Card to any of BAR's Local Fish Store Sponsors Rules: You must be a supporting member to participate. You must post 1 picture of the frag every month or else you are disqualified from the contest. We will set up a "Growth Tracking Thread" for this once we get the 10 people. If it becomes obvious you are only participating to buy cheap corals, you will be banned from future coral grow-out contests. Sorry B.O.D, we're short on frags on this one. No B.O.D may participate unless we have frags leftover. Why Do I Have to Pay? These corals cost the club money and honestly you will not find a frag of this for 10$ at any store. This small fee offsets the total cost of this competition so that we can save money to do even more contests and buy more prizes for you.
