well i have no official pictures of 100% accurate cound but i had an explosive growth rate the past 2 weeks! i will try and get pictures tomorrow but my rough count that i just took, i have approximately 50 polyps fully open! 4 lunar eclipses now!
ok here is an updated picture, i am still having explosive growth! i am only counting polyps that are opened up, so if babies are open they are counted, if they have not yet opened they are not counted yet.
here is my polyp count as of today:
better than kedds reds - 7
lunar eclipse - 4
purple deaths - 6
devils armor - 5
gobstopper - 7!!!!
greenbay packers - 11!!!
cherry coral/skyhigh zoas - 10!! (2-3 babies not open as well!)
eyes of rah - 9!!! (2-3 babies not open!!)
Total polyps = 59!!! 4 total lunars!
so in 23 days i have almost doubled my polyp count! 1 more polyp opens and it will double!
here is an updated picture, some polyps are closed because that hermit is doing some cleaning, the picture doesnt show all polyps as well as the big ones shade the light on the open babies and it was just a single top view:
well it has been over a month for me, i left and went on vacation then we had christmas and new years and with catching up with work and being sick and the swap being over with i think it is time for an update. no pictures though yet.
