Checking Interest (NEED INPUT)

Post by Bryan on Thu 22 Dec 2011, 10:23 am

I have noticed a few comments about having a second contest. This is you shot to make the rules.

Please give info on what you would like to do. Please include the following:

1. Tank size range
2. Length of contest
3. Entry Deadline
4. Stocking Deadline
5. Pizes you would like to see

I will go through the requests (if I get any) and we will try to get another going soon.


Thanks, Bryan

How about a "Growth" contest?
Open to any Tank/ Set-up. Perferably we could all start out with indentical sized frags of the same species. I'd suggest an easier SPS. Birdsnest or Monticap maybe? Document monthly with photos and discriptions of routine... dosing/ lighting/ ect...

It could work if we have enough people interested. My original thought was to do something that can include the FW side of the site as well. My concern however is having enough people participate. I was really disappointed in the turn out of the 2011 contest. I understand that times are a bit tough for alot of people right now, wich is why i kept it to small tanks. Hopefully we can get something going that will draw interest of more than 2 people. LOL


Thanks for the feedback

I think a contest that includes getting a free frag for participating should get some interest. We'll start it right after a meeting in an ideal scenario.

What if we combine the two. Have a tank contest for those who want to go that route FW/SW, then have a prize for best growth as well. I was thinking about a reef keeper lite for the tank prize since it can be used for fresh or salt, then have the free frag for the growth winner in the salt side. Winner could walk away with both if they play thier cards right.


Just an Idea.

This is posted in "General Reef"... just sayin'.. LOL
I'm pretty sure this idea would draw a larger crowd, although it would exclude FW. It could be done with minimal exspense. $10-$20 frag is all. Or one of your own if cut to the starting size. I think it'd be fun as well as educational. If we used Monticap for instance.. we could start out using the same sized diameter plugs. Coral not to exceed rim of plug. Winner could be determined by furthest distance from plug base.. vertical or horizontal.

I'd be interested, and maybe Mrs Y would take part. Although I say that with reservations, as everything in her tank seems to grow insanely .... perhaps I won't mention the competition ;-)

drats she reads the forum as much as I do.

I'd be in on the growth contest. If I set up another tank my house is going to explode.
