    Default thefishgirl - 2011 Grow Out Contest

    I will be entering this contest shortly, with pictures to follow.

    My entries will be placed in the 20g long tank. I just set up a thread for that in Members Tanks.
    Very simple set up:
    • 2 Nano Koralias
    • 2 HOB filters
    • T5HO for lighting

    No refugium and no skimmer.

    Pictures to follow - Lights were off this evening.
    Grow out package arriving tomorrow.

    Special thanks to CR for working with my crazy schedule and shipping zoas to me on a week that I was home.

    Yes..unfortunately, a very late start. These frag plugs were a bit smaller than what my frag shelf would hold. I've added some "zip tie spacers" to the shelf...so they are sitting in a frag shelf now, instead of strewn about on the rocks. Also, will be much easier to take pictures of. They are just starting to open up, so looking forward to getting some names/colors to go with the polyp counts. Hopefully, will get a few pictures yet this afternoon.

    Frag shelf modified with zip ties. Zoas are just starting to open after acclimation.
