    You missed out on something huge! But you still have time! Check out contest forum nano build thread and then decide to join. You can't afford not to really.

    you think I have money? HAHAHAHAHAHAHA thats a good one. I am the budget entry in this thing so for I have spent $20 bucks total. Ten on a tank ten on sand. Rock came from main tank and project, sand came from petsmart and the tank is a Walmart special. Heck I even took my water for this thing from my main tank. Just did a little bit bigger water change. Ok I know times are tough but come on it will be fun. Skip a drive thru meal or miss the next big movie and get on in. You can even get frags for 5 bucks it doesn't have to be a big money deal. I know I have next to no chance of winning thats not the point. I will be learning thats the point.

    Wow, I just re-read my post and it kind of sounds like I'm tring to keep people out of the contest...I'm not, trying to root you guys on; and I definitely wish I could join the fight, but $20 would cover the water changes I haven't done, if I buy any rock this month it's going in my tank that is still under weight, I'm already skipping the drive thru and living off of Nissin Thai Peanut Chow Mein | The Impulsive Buy , and I've been watching "free" versions of the big movies as they are "lended" to me :ugh: :squint: :mrgreen:...and while this does sound like fun, it's just bad timing for me, but I still have a month to find a bag of money laying in the street :lol:, so who knows, I might be able to get together an entry after all. :x:

    we sure do. the population has gotten out of hand apparently. In fact if you look at daughertys entry you can barely make out a headline about it on his montana newspaper. The hunt almost got canceled by a federal judge in montana, but apparently the hunt is on now.

    Oh and I have tons of other beer in the house. and beer drinking IS mandatory. Trust me it will not be pbr all the time, but its frequent as its my fallback beer between drinking my 3-6 dollar a bottle microbrew 22 oz bottles.

    OK gang! last second I decided to go with sump and in sump skimmer! I may change this later as the skimmer pump is so loud i dont know if i can handle this for months on end, but for now it seemed like a great idea. here are a few shots of the setup as of yesterday.

    Tank stats so far are as follows:

    HOB overflow w/ slightly modified larger drain tube for more flow.
    10gal sump.
    pacific coast ps100 skimmer
    coralife 24in power compact light.
    about 4 inches of sand
    probably 20LBS all liverock (wanted to do more haha)

    Well that sums it up for now.
