Why is it that my 1.5l femto tank looks similar in size to my 12l pico?

I have seen them more and more lately also. There is one for sale by me, 40 gallons and going for $100. I really want one of these old tanks, but I want a small one. I don't think that is gonna happen.

To keep the FTS/FES thread Clean, is there any way to limit who can post? Or at the very least remove posts that are not of FTS/FES?

Always at some point those threads get loaded with comments and takes away from the ease of scrolling through setups.

yeah, it's gonna be strictly no comments and just pics, kind of
like a gallery of tank pics. that will make judging a whole lot easier!

Technically speaking. This would allow people the opportunity to add items earlier than the 1st. I guess there is no way around it, and we are pretty much on the honor system here.

exactly, either way we're going to have to deal with the fact that someone may have already put livestock in, but just hope that everyone is playing fair. you're definitely right though, we really are on the honor system.

Could you enforce a rule where your pic has to be time stamped? And you have to post a before coral pic?

Keep in mind not all digi-cams allow you to put a time stamp on it. Not to mention, time stamps are a manual setting.

I hope it's cool that I posted my FTS and FES already, since my pico is in the office. Did I just commit to going to the office on Saturdays that fall on the 1st?

Is there. Hyperlink to the FTS/ FES thread? I just have to do a large water change and can begin to add livestock. I just want to do this contest right, I have never done something like this.

I don't think time stamp is necessary, People in the contest have no reason to be dishonest. This is something fun, Right.

Really, who would gain anything from trying to cheat at a Hobby Contest, Right..:)

So, the guys at Rose City Aquarium have been keeping an eye out for pests that I can put in my contest entry tank. Well, they scored big for me! I mean, really big! Well, it's actually pretty small...

How about a black mantis shrimp? Huh? Huh? Wouldn't that be cool? Oh yes, it is uber cool!

So, for the next couple days, he's going to be hanging out in my empty 7.5 gallon tank all by himself (and a couple hermits and snails which he'll probably eat).

It looks like he's a basher. And jet black to boot! How sinister!

Here's a picture of him acclimating to the 7.5 gallon tank...

Is he bad-ass or what?
