    Tank of the month

    Anyone have any interest in bringing this back. It's been a while. I think we should have 2 separate categories. Under 100 gallons and over. I think it would be fun and might force some of us to do a little maintenance. We could start in September.

    I was just thinking about this tonight as well B, what if the tank of the month is who ever is hosting that month to give a nice preview of the tank you will be seeing that month? I know it would help answer questions ahead of time so the host isn't explaining their setup over and over the entire day.

    I like how Reef central has the nano tank of the month, but under 34 gallons is pretty restrictive for most. And there is a huge difference between 34 and 300. What if you did it the other way? The winner hosts the next month. I'm not sure thats a prize though.

    I think that is a good idea, if not we should definetly impliment the T.O.T.M. idea again.

    I certainly won't be winning this lol
    I think it's a great idea though.
    My tank needs a lot of work and, considering I only have one half of my tank lit currently and a very limited budget, it'll be a while before I'm contender. I'm certainly gonna shoot for it though!

    This would be cool. If nothing else just to see everyones tanks each month in the same area. Still have a long way to go on mine. Right now it is shaping into a species tank. Mostly in the way of pests. Some people have a nem tank or predators. I have pests. Lol. Oh yeah, there are some fish in there too!

    I'm totally down for some t.o.t.m. action
    Why not just do over a 100g one month then under a 100g the next

    Why can't we have two t.o.t.m.? One over 100, one under. What about a coral of the month?

    ok lets do it. we will do 99 gallons or less and 100 gallons and up. we will start a new thread with sub threads each month for both categories. just post a few pics and if you are voted as the winner then expand on your post and tell us more about your setup. Or do you want the winner to host the next meeting? My thoughts are that some people may not enter because they may not want to host a meeting. Respond to this post with your thought through the weekend and we will start on Monday. We will run the post for the September entries for the rest of the month and start voting Oct. 1st for Sept TOTM!
