What size tank is it again? No bigger then a 20g right? I have a cube tank that I'm setting up right now that is 20 inches long by 16 inches wide by 14 inches tall. I think it looks about 20g ish but I don't now how to figure it out for sure. I put water, salt, heater and powerhead in today and cured live rock is coming tomorrow, not sure if you can use already cured rock or not either.

Cool thanks for figuring that out for me. I thought it looked about 20g but I didn't know how to figure it out for sure.

I was just looking through the nano contest threads and most people have these build plans 1st then put them into action. I got a 20g cube tank Wed. (never got a pic. of it empty) Put it on my black end table and set it up with water, salt, powerhead and heater last night. Then saw this thread and got some ideas about possibably entering, but tonight I get my friends LR, frogfish (controversial damsels) and lights (maybe skimmer) and volia it will be all set up. So not much of a tank build thread to follow and I don't know if getting everything from an existing set up is allowed or not.

Yeah the general idea is to start it off with salt water and rock. I suppose you could just take a photo of it now before you put everything in. This round is no holds barred (ie. no budget, the only restriction is the max 20g) tank size.

Its up to you really :)

i think its just for fun and an excuse to show ppl what kind of mischief you can get into with a tank beside maybe youll add some corals or your rock design is cool or you add something through the time of the thread that makes ppl pick your tank over others.. i say go for it enter have fun if i had the money id enter but my tank is just freshly built since dec and it broke me lol.

seems like there are a few people still in but I think most have given up or forgotten about it. Guess we're getting close to the end, I'll have to put out the call for a final photo :biggrin:
