These were both taken with a nikon D200 with a Nikkor f2.8 VR 105mm. One is a simple green montipora I got from Bayside Corals and the other is a 5 colour rainbow Zoanthid from Wickedfrags.

I think some people had problems with a vendor running the contest??

Now it'll prob just die off and then people will complain when their is no contest

rstar
12-05-2008, 09:19 PM
geesh, i dont get why people get so uptight about a vendor running the contest, its just mean great prizes to be had... that a real bummer that a few complaints can ruin something good...

Jason McK

Steve did a great job with running the POTM but at this time we thought it best to have the contest run by Canreef staff rather than a vendor

Thank you for your understanding
