    yup you should have time. This is going to be the last month of entries (aka you have to have your tank up by the end of this month). Look for the official contest thread to be up in a few days!

    I am sadly not going to be able to join this contest. The college prep school I'm attending next year doesn't allow pets in dorms (no fish) and I can't put that money out for a tank only to keep it for a couple of months.

    I am going to try and get the official thread up this week. I have been swamped with school (it's my last 3 weeks before I graduate so getting ready for everything and trying to finish everything up) so I haven't had a lot of time to devote to it. I'll try and get it up this week though!

    lol, me too Erin! But I'm gonna enter anyway. I mean there won't be any corals in mine so no chance I can win, but the urchin jail has to at least be a unique tank in some way :p

    Yup! It's starting! I think there's going to be an official announcement sometime soon, but tanks that are being entered should already be started. This is to prevent folks from getting a 10 last minute, cramming a bunch of corals and a fish or two in it for the contest, and then either taking it down right after or having everything die shortly after. It's supposed to be an exhibition of what can be (responsibly) done with limited space and unlimited imagination.

    I dont think anyone here would have those intetions at all. But this "contest" seems a lil half assed planed IMO. Rules should have been set out day one of this "contest" in its own thread.Just sayin.:Cheers:

    mabey we need to start a more structured contest where everyone starts with the same stuff or at least be limited on what we can use on our tanks

    If you go to the beginning of the thread I believe we had to start our tanks in march or April and end the contest in July or so. Then we were going to vote on it. Also the tanks can't be more than 10-12 gallons I think. I know we did go over the rules at one point. Just needs to be made official.

    Living Reefs held an official 10-gallon contest a couple years ago. Here is the thread with the rules if you wanted to model something new after it. Any contest needs structure and rules, unless it's just for fun. If you want to make it legit, I suggest outlining those and starting over with the rules in place from the beginning. It would be hard to impose rules and structure when everyone already has their tanks set up and is doing whatever they want with them.
