    Default New competition - come in and have a look!

    We have a new competition that anyone can do. No need for CO2, for breeding or raising difficult fish, or for any fancy materials. Just you, your aquascaping ability, and a container UP to 5 litres! This container can be anything you choose from a pill bottle to a tiny tank--the decision is YOURS!

    AL has said we can use 2 prizes for this competition. The winner can select any 1 of the following prizes:

    1 year premium subscription
    2012 Aquariumlife calendar
    Aquariumlife cap
    AquariumLife t-shirt

    The runner up or 2nd place winner will receive a 2012 AL calender.


    The following people have been made "senior members" to create, run and generally deal with new competitions. So don't all pm me! LOL

    Here are all the senior members, please feel free to pm any of us.

    ONLY ENTRIES ARE TO BE POSTED HERE ALL OTHER POSTS WILL BE DELETED

    Any questions about the rules or anything else for that matter should be posted on the special Question Thread that has been started as we are trying to keep this thread clean and easy to view the pictures - not filled with loads of questionsi

    I think maybe it might be the wrong time of year/ too short notice for this comp. I like the idea, but no chance of doing anything by dec 20.

    Heres one from me, I cracked the glass in my original scape for this competition so quickly made this one at work yesterday.

    Its loosely inspired from the rice fields of Northern Bali. Hardscape was made out of foam and a new coating i'm trialing, tank was spare(ish!) acrylic sheet. Holds about 1.5 litres at a guess.

    The substrate is Black Earth from Aquascape Design and the only [plant im using is HC. Looks very bare at the moment but IME black earth and excel make HC grow like a weed!



    All the best

    Dave
