This post is to announce my official participation into the stock portion of the contest. I encourage some of you guys to do the same. the cube has a lot of potential right out of the box and I think a stock tank can look just as good as any of the open category tanks.

ingenuity>fancy equipment

here are some pics of the cube, for you doubting thomases :)

This tank is an exceptionally built machine and well worth the nominal 80 dollars. The moderators did a great job picking this tank and the sponsor is more than generous with the price. This tank has my full endorsement, and so does the stock portion of the competition. Consider this my warning to you suckas, Im gonna win :)


PS
The tank is going to house my black ocellaris pair for now until they are transfered to a 20gal sps tank. I will start my official project for the contest starting june first. (I'm not cheating :))

take it from user 1983. If there is no cause, there will be no effect. I'll log my progress to prove the point :)

funny that supernip was the one to point out that the new rules are up while she's already broken one of them!!

Posts like this make me think this contest should be interesting, in more ways than one. If I hadn't just bought a 12g nc, I probably would have picked up a 6g for this contest. Goodluck to those that take part in the contest.

I don't want to be negative b/c I know this contest is all in good fun, but how is adding water, rock, and fish before the start date not breaking the rules? It doesn't seem materially different than having an established tank, emptying it to take the start pic, and putting everything back. JMHO...
