183 posts in this topic
When the new contest i would love to start up a 6" by 6" cube but i need an excuse..........lol Or a 2.5 gallon.

 

already had a pico contest. i doubt people would do the cube design either....

have you done something that small before? alot of work to keep it stable

i doubt there will be another pico contest but maybe. there were alot of people who wanted another pico contest....

next contests isnt going to be for a while and when i say awhile i mean a few months after this one ends.. and this one just begun in oct. and i am pretty sure is 6 months long so in April is the end date... so the next contest (if there is one) is going to be a few months after april

EDIT** checked the rules, this contest ends on March 31, 2007 ((which is practically april) so if there is going to be another contest it will be a few months after that

Yes, For about 4 or 5 years now and befour that i had a small 10 gallon tank for about 1.5 years.

 

Ive had fresh water all my life so im no dummy.

 

I would be doing two or three water changes weekly if i get the 6" cube for the calcium and all that good stuff.

 

For the 2.5 gallon tank probably a gallon or a half gallon water change every week.

 

 

I know i only have like 100 post but the only thing i do when i go online is read about fish.... For about five years. LOL.

I'm definitely down with a new contest. I'm loving checking out the previous ones. I am hoping to get something going for my desk at work. hopefully smaller than 3 gallons.

That’s not a bad idea. Having a contest with tanks that are normal household items like:

• A coffee pot

• Kool-Aid pitcher

• Beer mug

• Flower vase

• 5-gallon jug (ship in a bottle type concept)

 

It’d also be cool to see what people came up with if they had to use a standard fish bowl.

Specimen tank contest.. . minimal dimensional or volume rules.. . categories for 1, 3 or 5 species, with or without external support (could be plumbed of another tank).

 

I like the fishbowl idea, get people inventive.
