    The next big member benefit!

    Our sponsor, Tropical Paradise Corals has offered us some really great corals at fantastic prices to use in a grow out contest.

    First the corals
    Reef Raft Pink Floyd for only $40

    "Pink and Golds" zoas for only $10

    Now the rules:
    1. Must be a paying member.
    2. Must pick up corals from a trustee. All corals for each region will be sent to the trustees or arrange your own shipping or pick up.
    3. Must post a photo the first week of every month for one year either here or on the GIRS Facebook page. We will send a ruler along with the Pink Floyd to be in the pics. We will allow 2 missed months so you must make 10 of the 12.
    4. Winners will be determined by an impartial judge. Pink and Golds Zoa will be most heads, Pink Floyd will be growth.
    5. No more than one coral from each category for each member. I bet if you wanted to purchase other corals, Matt would ship them together.
    6. First 20 people in each category to Pay Pal are in.
