    Display: 120g 4x2x2

    Lighting: Home-built LED units. 150-200 PAR available to all frags.

    Flow: 2 MP40wES on tidal swell, genx pcx40 closed loop, half of a mag9 return pump.

    Position: All 8 frags are on the sand bed in the front right corner of my display. They will not be moved until this contest is over.

    Dosing: Daily Vodka additions, no bacteria additions.


    All have been in the display since about 6pm All are open, purple deaths and lunar eclipse are being a little more sluggish on opening up but they are well on their way to be fully open

    Very nice - excellent growth. Glad to see the Eye of Rah taking off for somebody.
    I collect PEs, and I'm always looking to trade for ones I don't have yet.

    Thanks for the comments.. I didn't want to change anything in the tank during this contest but the idea of a turf scrubber for nutrient export & pod growth piqued my interest so I recently converted my fuge into one, we'll see if that has any positive or negative effects.

    those turf scrubbers are amazing, you can almost not even run a skimmer with those, i know people that run them with no skimmer. good luck with it!

    Did you happen to do a build thread? I would be curious to see how you did it.

    sorry no build thread on the scrubber it's just something I threw together in one night. It's run off the old feed line to my fuge, the water level in the tank is at about 4".. two screens parallel to one another each tee'd off the line hang from the top of the tank, only two lights... it's not optimal but we'll see how it goes.

    I'll probably update my main tank thread with some pics of it.
