Are you talking about the "start photo of an empty tank with your favorite snack" in it to show starting with an empty tank? Or feeding the tank to start the cycle?

 

yup after posting that & reading more of the threads I saw that. maybe if I would read the whole thing I would not ask silly questions. ha

I  think I am having almost as mush fun  as you guys/gals with this.

 

on a side note it seems like there is 1 contest a year?  is it always the same time of year or just when ever?

Just whenever.  Momentum eventually builds for one.

I am amazed at everyone's contest tank.  They each are so unique and don't look cheap and boring like some suggested they would look at the beginning.  I personally love my janky tank better than my 75 gallon because I can take care of it and do water changes by myself.  I have changed out the fish once since the beginning and decided to just go with riccordea, zoas, and gsp as coral now.  I had to remove a bunch of the riccs that had split because I was running out of room.  These are July pictures right after a full water change and rock rearrangement so a lot of the zoas are closed up.1214597867_IMG_6509-Copy.thumb.JPG.58bb1777d9a9130bf5fede957f445b23.JPG
