    My apologies for the lack of follow up on this thread. I've been so busy with business and other projects, I completely forgot about this until a reminder email from Jim.

    As it's so late and I haven't met the posting requirements, I think it best I withdraw from the competition. Interestingly, aside from having lost one of the frags (not sure which is which, but it fell off of the plug shortly after acclimation) these are doing well. Maybe I've finally solved my Z&P curse

    Jim - Feel free to remove this thread if you like - I look forward to the next contest when I have enough time to devote.

    Even being out of the contest, I'd still be interested in an occasional update.

    Have you done anything in particular that you feel has helped the Z&P's in your system?
