Apparently someone missed the part where I said positive feedback. This is supposed to be a fun thing, people! Life's no fun if you complain about it all the time. Go with the flow! Try somehing new!

Let's make it simple: you don't want to do the contest, don't.

And Josh, yes it did. Don't worry, they'll go away in time.

tyia.

i hope this contest will be based on how well the overall tank looks and not how many acans you can cram into it.

How about if we create third division?

Hardware only!

So you are judged on quality hardware upgrades!
So tank in this catagory doesn't even need to contain 1 drop of water!

And yes. I am an idiot!

so for the second category in which you can mod, is it cheating if you drill it and plumb it to a 125 gallon tank (i mean sump....).

OPEN: This category is open to allow entrants to excercise their imagination with modifications. Feel free to hack, drill, melt the stock nanocube to your hearts desire. Any external plumbing must not bring the entire system volume over 12 gallons.


so in a word, yes ;)

and pili, sorry dude. all i can say.

This is the whole point of the unmodified category. Setting the a restriction (in this category) to stock-tank-only, entries will be judged by the aquarist's skill at what's in the tank. Some individuals may not be comfortable paying $79.99 for the tank for whatever reason and that's great, maybe the rules will suit him or her better next time.

Tanks that show the skill of the aquarist will have the best chance at winning. If you're looking for the fairest playing field, you should enter the in the stock category. By competing against others using the same setup, you'll be able to best demostrate selection of appropriate livestock, aquascaping, placement of coral, and other things "money can't buy." Good luck!

Enter your tank in the Open category and gut/drill/glue the stock tank to your heart's desire (1 drop of water is fine, just don't let the drops add up to 12 gallons)

If you enter the open category, can you buy a modded cube from nanocustoms or do you have to start with a stock one and mod it your self?

The price Nanocustoms is offering to NR members is unbeatable.

"my grandfather's axe"

If I replace my nanocube's hood and then the tank, is it still a nanocube?

There is no restriction on removing the hood to use some other light source for tanks in the Open category as of yet. Wait for the more complete rules/regulations (as noted in the announcement--available soon)

entries will be judged by the aquarist's skill at what's in the tank



That was part of my point. Are you more likely to win if you have 5 acanthatrea's and 4 colonies of PPE, some firecrackers, a blasto, and a helfrichi goby?

and other things "money can't buy"

BTW, who will be the judge?

Everyone involved gets a vote?
