    Here are my first month pics. Just picked up the hammer so it’s not too happy.

    I need to find another ruler. Although I can read the size when I blow-up the pic on my phone, here I cannot see the ruler markings.

    Here's another picture. I went to Office Depot/Office Max. They had plastic rulers on sale for 25 cents. Bought a clear one. Then I expanded on Casey's idea and took the plastic lid from a cool whip container, cut out a strip the width of the ruler and super-glued it to the ruler. Can see the ruler very easy now!

    August pic. Acro doing fine, but zoa had to be reglued and came off plug so zoa is history. May have set a record for shortest time in grow out contest.[​IMG][​IMG]

    August grow out pic. Better late than never right?? :) sorry for the bad quality pic.

    The acro got split in half right away and the zoas have floated away into the deep blue on the first day. The acro is finally healed and showing some new growth.
