ok there is 1 no.. anyway i know the otehr contestants have their opinions on this.. please let me know... its not really an advantage b.c. it is considerably the same size.. i could have goten a 2.5g Hex madefor the contest... anyway the normal 2.5g tanks arent actually 2.5g and are more like 2g. ...MORE OPINONS.. also please post why you voted no (if you did).....

I'm not going to vote since I'm not in the custom category but wouldn't it be the same as starting the tank over? I know you want to use the new tank, but can you wait another month?

From the contest rules:
(My emphasis added)

A WORD ABOUT TANK CRASHES!
If your tank crashes (for any reason) you will not be able to restart after contest entry has closed (November 5, 2005).

Reason: If your tank crashes, you would have to set it up again which would be basically be entering a new system after contest entry has ended. The point of this contest is to keep a healthy reef the first time around, not to start and then restart over and over if you continually hose your system.

no, its not setting it up again b.c. the im using all the same stuff from my tank.... so no its just a new shell... my tank didnt crash

Copied EXACTLY from the rules:
Custom Category Rules
THE TANK
Your display tank volume must be 2.5 Gallons or smaller. If you are using a custom built tank, you may need to show images with measuring device of some sort to prove dimensions to the rest of the contestants. You may be asked at different intervals to take photos of your tank with measuring devices and something else in pic to prove current photo. You may not use an 8 gallon tank for your system and seperate it with a "false back" wall. So....Say it with me everyone...."Your display tank volume must be 2.5 gallons or under".


also i will be using the same water, rock, and coral/fish.. this isnt restarting my system.. its transfering it into a different tank... kinda like if my tank was cracking and i went out and bought another 2.5g then i doubt i would be disqualified for transfering into another 2.5g anyway it says in the rules if your tank crashes (which mine hasnt) then you cant restart it.. and it says for [CUSTOM] category that your display must be 2.5g or less (so a 1.8 gallon tank isnt against the rules in any way) also some more from the rules:


A WORD ABOUT TANK CRASHES!
If your tank crashes (for any reason) you will not be able to restart after contest entry has closed (November 5, 2005).

Reason: If your tank crashes, you would have to set it up again which would be basically be entering a new system after contest entry has ended. The point of this contest is to keep a healthy reef the first time around, not to start and then restart over and over if you continually hose your system.

I WILL NOT BE RESTARTING THE TANK IN ANYWAY! so there for it isnt breaking that rule either.. so more votes and please say why if u did vote no
thanks

ok well so far it is a tie b.c. PAco, voted no but ment to say yes so i had 1 for no and 0 for yes.. then i voted in yes to make it even..so this means you +1 vote for yes and -1 from no .. this means i have.. o wait this means Yes is winning and no isnt.. b.c. paco's vote for no doesnt count. and he voted yes.. (does that make scence)

ok now its a tie.. :/

Gil? Gil? (hear echo sound, Gil,Gil,Gil,Gil,.....)

I know that it isn't like a crash but it wouldn't be different than a tank cracking mid way through the contest. Yes you'd be using the same LR, sand, etc. but you would be setting up a "new" tank. I was under the impression that you had to stick w/ the one you brung.

Gil? Gil? (hear echo sound, Gil,Gil,Gil,Gil,.....)

Yes: 8
No: 9

Paco accidentaly voted no but meant to vote yes... so that means take 1 away from No [bringing it down to 8], and adding one to Yes [bringing it it up to 9]
therefore the actual scoreis
Yes: 9
No:8

sorry, it might be little over your head/age (you're 13-yr-old, right?). it's not an insult, just a joke.

it has to do with the 2000 presidential elections, you were probably 7 then? so i guess you don't remember it too well. not sure if schools are covering that recent of history at your age (my son's isn't-he's 13 too). i think "current" history is covered more at hs.

then again, aren't you home-schooled or was that someone else?
