I hate to break it to you, but your LFS does a terrible job of keeping coral. There is significant bleaching.

I'm kind of wondering if beverage pics are cool with everyone.  It seems a little like a failed attempt at guessing what the secret item would be; not saying that anybody actually did that.  IDK, maybe a drink is a snack.  :unsure:

I'm kind of wondering if the few snack pics, with beverages instead, are cool with everyone.  It seems a little like a failed attempt at guessing what the secret item would be; not saying that anybody actually did that.  Beverage pics just feel a little weird to me. :unsure:. IDK, maybe a drink is a snack.

At the time mine was just what I had. I wanted to do this but wasnt in the mood to run in the house......was trying to stay on the healthy snack theme :wink:

You're not the only one. I am trying to eat better, and have no snacks I actually eat in the house. Sure, I could have thrown something in there like crackers, or the peanuts my husband takes to work... but I did go out and buy a snack just for this photo op. 🤷‍♀️

I mean crackers, peanuts, or bananas are actually all snacks...

If the samoans dont count as snacks I have a jar of cashews as a backup snack photo (took it before I remembered the cookies).

 

Not much we can do now anyway, asking someone to break their tank down for a new photo seems silly, and a lot of work. Starting a week early would be the same as curing rock anyway or using established LR, something most did. I'm trying to seed my new rock then will remove.

Yeah, there's always an on your honor component to these contests.  I wasn't trying to call foul; just that snack implies food.  Even a slight head start wouldn't be a huge advantage.  No worries.

I mean if someone really wanted to cheat they could have just set up 2 identical tanks, so just go with it. The 1st place prize probably wont even cover to cost of livestock so it shouldn't be a big enough prize to make cheating worthwhile.

I know what you mean. I did a beverage as well in this thread because I thought it was funny but also because the only snacks in house are for my 2 year old. But I had a feeling people would think this way so in my janky tank thread I posted a pic with a pineapple just to be safe.

I read this as 50 bags of chaeto at first. I was wondering why you'd need that much.
