    Thinking about TOTM again. I think everything resets for this new year coming up right? because my 110g won it in 2008 so it might not even be eligible if the rules have changed.

    Anywhooo. I know the big tank might be better but maybe i should start out with the small shrimp tank and wait for a while on the 110g for my fish stock to increase and plants to grow in more then they are already.

    I probably wont use these photos but something close to them. So if you see something you don't like then let me know and i'll look into changing them for the competition photos.

    And i already know about the equipment and glare on the 110g and will fix that for the next photo.

    The second one appeals more to me. Seems more lively to me with all the greenery. Oh the darker substrate in it too.

    Vette, the photos that go in the contests are on the Que. No names are put on the photos so they are kept anonymous so we don't know who they belong to (which was requested by members). It hardly makes much sense to judge a photo here, knowing it's yours, then seeing it in the contests under "anonymous", does it? We also don't pre-judge each photo to have members picking out the best one before the photo is entered or everyone else would be doing that, as well.

    I love both your tanks (!!!!) but really, pre-judging photos is not the fair way of doing things, IMO.

    The contests do not start over each January. Only the MOTM.

    You can only win one award for the same photo. If your photo has already won in POTM, TOTM, AOTM, CPOTM or Runner-Up in either of those contests or it has won the Photo Excellence Award, you cannot use that same photo again.

    I agree hobbs, but what should we do then?

    When i post a set of pictures i exclude the ones i think may be POTM material, but ive always pondered what to do about totm, since the only real way to keep people in the dark would be to not post any pics of the tank at all.

    This is a tricky one, that ive been rolling around in my head for a while.
    I mean to be completely honest i can usually tell whos tanks both 1st and 2nd place are the entire time and im sure it was the same for most who spend a lot of time on AC


    Either way great pics punn, i also like the second one best.
