    MARSH Grow Out Challenge

    MARSH Grow Out Challenge.

    We are looking for participants to receive and grow a coral frag. Using all their tips and tricks, as well as some useful advice from our volunteer “experts”, our goal is to help you succeed in growing a coral frag and preparing it for its soon to be new home at Moody Gardens. So if you have a knack for growing corals, whether it be zoa’s, monti’s, shrooms, or acros and want to join in this friendly little competition then we want to hear from you! This event is open to all MARSHians (Supporting or Guest).

    Wait, did I just say competition? Yes I did! At the end of the 6 month grow out, our “experts” who will have been following along, offering advice and encouraging you along the way will pick a winner. The winner will have their choice of one of three prizes! Our winner have their choice of (2) passes to Moody Gardens, (2) passes to Reef Currents, or (3) a $100 Gift Certificate to the Sponsor LFS of their choice.

    As with any challenge, there are some rules…..
    1 – You will be asked to keep track of your progress by posting biweekly updates that include pics and parameter readings.
    2 – At the end of the 6 months you will be expected to turn over the frag you received..sorry, no keepsies.
    3 – HAVE FUN! This is a fun and educational way to learn something new!

    Great question! Just go ahead and post it to the thread you are wanting to participate in, either the Let It Grow or the Grow Out thread.

    Are you sure we can't add Aiptasia to the list? That's the only one I think I might be able to win. LOL
