2018 Reeded Growout Contest God of War

Discussion in 'MASC Run Contests' started by scchase, Apr 23, 2018.

    This will be the thread for the photos and information regarding the Gods of war grow out contest. All pics needed for this contest must be posted here.

    Contest notes
    1. Entry fee is labeled with each potential contest frag, this covers your cost of the frag, transportation, a donation to MASC and puts $$ in the pool for the winner(s). Winner pot is whatever remains after cost of frag and donation with minimum pool being $30 for some of the higher priced frags this pool will be much higher based on minimum buy ins.
    2. Frags will be cut two weeks before contest start and individually numbered. Once numbered, you'll randomly be assigned a number, and pickup your frag. There will be no cherry picking, all luck of the draw.
    3. Each contestant must post a photo of their frag within 48hrs of contest start/time, or from when you receive your frag.
    4. Each contestant must post a picture each month by the 10th.
    5. All frags must remain on original plug until the end of the contest
    6. Each contestant must post a final picture to be counted by the deadline of the Saturday before the Coral Extravaganza
    7. Scchase is final judge in deciding Head or Baby in pictures if needed of zoas and responsible for any weighing or discrepancies at the Coral Extraveganze.
    8. Grow time will be from the delivery of frags at the 2018 Reefed to the Winter Extravaganza in Late November to December.
    9. If your frag melts, post up so we know you're out. Maybe the winner will frag you a head
    10. If your frag comes off it's plug, you can re-attach, but you must post up additional picture once re-attached within 48 hours.

    Any frag group from the above list with a minimum of 5 participants will be cut and the contest will run

    All frags must remain on initial frag plug for the duration of the contest. All Zoa frags will start as single polyps which I will cut 2 weeks before the winter event. Zoa frags will be measured by 1 polyp counts 2 overall colony size 3 tie breaker to be judged on overall coral and aesthetics (hope it doesn't come to this). Each participant must post monthly photos of their frags with a ruler indicating size to remain eligible for prizes these photos will be due on the 10th of each month and the final photo will be due the week before Reefed. Any potential ties and final judging as needed will be conducted at Reefed and any participant that will need to bring their frag/s to Reefed will be notified in the week prior to the event. Each contest that runs will have a thread created for pictures.

    All frags are to be picked up at the Reefed meeting and the deadline for any pickups will be May 6th to be considered for the grow out contest, frags not picked up by then can still be received but will not be eligible for the prize pool.


    Please send Payments for this contest to scchase7@gmail.com or pay cash at the 2018 Coral Reefed. I will update this post as people have paid and post final prize pool following the official start of the contest. Pics of frags will be available later this week.

    This will be my 2nd attempt at these lol. Gabe gave me a frag many years ago, it did great for a long time and then up out of no where it stopped growing and eventually melted away, but have been wanting to put them back in ever since.

    Same here. Except mine melted during my huge tank crash on the 125 and not at random.

    She’s got a tank that will seriously grow anything. Her 32 biocube puts our 150 gallons total volume to shame! Is depressing
