    Josh another option is for one of us to buy the tank here and then ship it to you. Don't know what it would cost and may not be worth it but....

    I imagine the cost for international shipping for the tank would more than pay for him to purchase the tank itself locally.

    I think the issue is that in AU that exact tank is not sold.

    I grudgingly voted for the Deco for the light output.

    It's so ugly, though...

    Okay I have tried to contact Alexander a couple times over the last couple weeks, but have not heard back. So I'm gonna go ahead and call it. The Deco wins. Have your tank by November 1. That gives everyone nearly 2 months to save up money and buy it. The contest starts November 1, so that means no water, no rock, no sand, no NOTHING in the tank before that date. The tank must remain empty until the start of the competition.

    If you are planning on entering the competition, please start a thread in the Contest forum with your Username saying so, i.e. "Bifferwine Pico Contest".

    Everyone, ready, get set, GO!

    EDIT: If everyone that plans on entering has their tank before November 1, I will bump up the start date.

    I hope we can get a lot of people interested for this. It's cheap enough and should be fun too.

    I'm an American. I shoot first and ask questions never. That's why I'm always right.

    sorry guys. I suck. life has been far too crazy for me lately. Thanks for making the executive decision to get things rollin Biff. I should probably order my deco today. get back in the groove of things. I will promise to try to be a little more attentive to the contest from this point on. Things have just been nuts with school and work lately. but i can find a few mins here and there for at least this if nothing else on the forum. I owe it to you guys!

    Alexander, you're back!!! :^:

    I am thinking about this one, but I have to see the rules and timeline of things, before I am going to decide. I have to move in Feb and I am currently in 4 grad school classes and next semester gets even more stressful.

    So we will see!
