    I think favia are nice for a grow out because the have predictable growth oatrerns and it’s easy to count heads.

    Zoas And acans are also a great choice

    Acros would require weigh ins or something

    Chalices have sweepers that are too long for my they obviously suck for everyone

    I'm looking for another torch and a wall hammer but I recognize that they take up a lot of room.

    Most chalices don't have massive sweepers and many are quite small if any at all. Hollywood stunner is an outlier, that thing has huge sweepers.

    This pole closes in 7 days. Keep the votes coming.

    I didnt vote torch or hammer because the ones I want to grow fast, dont grow at all. This is a contest amiright? But these might be good for 1 year contests and I would like to learn how others are getting them to grow. My purple hammer, gold torch, and even my green torch hasn't grown any new heads in months while my green and purple tipped hammers growth rates are off the charts.

    I've been liking favias lately for their bright colors, growth patterns, and hardiness.

    Cyphastrea would be cool but measurements would suck.

    Pectina of some kind would be an awesome grow out!

    I guess you can apply that to anything lol. Last cyphastrea I had was over 100 polyps after 6 months.

    Coral beauty found out she liked the taste and killed it in 3 days.

    seems to me that the fastest growing corals such as montis are the way to go...otherwise it's like watching grass grow...oh wait

    I can cut the pink boobies chalice frags I have so they are all relatively equal.

    I can make 12 frags with 3-4 eyes each.

    Don't know how to do pricing though if we want to do gift cards for the winner and make sure the club gets something for it.
