I recently started trying some new photo of the month contest themes likes 'stripes' and 'predators.' I'd like to get more themes lined up for future months and wanted to get some input from everyone. I like to keep the themes somewhat broad, but we could possibly even have some be more specific like 'acanthastrea' or 'sexy shrimp.'

Please submit your theme ideas!

thrive (adjective) (throve,thriven, also thrived)
Very lively and profitable; blooming; a term often used by nubz looking for excuses on why they have something in their reef that does not belong there.
"The tangs in my 40 gallon are thriving", "All 13 fish in my pico throve until I forgot to feed them one day"
See also: successful, overstocked, reefnewb

Growth ! Before and after. Either the growth aspect or color cange/morph under your lights after tank addition ! Acans , chalice, sps, Inverts !

Great thing about the internet is you dont have to go to a porn site to witness a gang b***


I choose not to specialize in my whoring.


Only on NR could a thread about hydrometers end up being a discussion about turds.

+1 to macros, hitchhikers, and before/after.

Also, spikes, bonsai, sponges, kids/pets next to the tank.

Caught in the Act shots. Unusual things like hermits out of the shell or changing shells, clowns hosting not so normal things, snail shells covered in GHA, etc.

+1 to this. This goes along with the thought of some type of "action" shots... "stalk", "sleep", "eat", etc.

How about abstracts or macros? You could get really artsy and creative with those.

1. "What is it?" - everyone takes pictures of a critter they need ID'd, so it could server 2 purposes
2. "The Posing Fish" - pic's of fish that stand out from the background
3. "The Coral Fade" - Shots that Naturally blur out everything except the coral you choose.
4. "Antiquing" - B&W photos only because it's not always all about the colors
