Just buy a 10G tank move some rock and water out of your bc14 for him.. then restart your 14. I'd say you could put him in my 180 Office tank, but not sure you'd ever get him out after.

umm josh I think your on to something. didn't think about that

What's a ywg? Dude haven't talk to u in a while lol. U should totally get it going. For gloating rights lol

**** ya I'm totally in. Lol I used to drive past your place all the time. But ya its a sad life with a 14gal tank. really tricky and I got hydroids right now... won't say from where

Well so much for it being fun for everyone....

Well.... If you're up for it, I'm willing to offer my advice and assistance :)

Hell, Denny, I want to put this in there - to the winner of this contest, I'll throw in a combo piece of of premium deepwater Zoas.

This should get the party started:


Yes, these are the same Zoas that were flaunted here:



EDIT: Assuming the winner is in GVRD.

09-10-2012, 02:49 PM
I'll sign up now before it's too late. I'm still on the fence but keep finding myself looking at little nano tanks everytime I go into a pet store. The wife even said it was OK which was a suprise to me.

09-10-2012, 02:51 PM
I don't have enough time for the 2 tank's I have now so another wont hurt at all ! I AM IN :D

09-10-2012, 03:45 PM
Im confused... some tanks are already set up and going O_o?

if your gung ho as christy says , you can do your nano at your own pace, its important to document everyting you do and add pics by the dates provided.

some people(like me) are going to take a bit longer to get going(im still in the planning stages) some people have an idea and are started to get it together.

basically everyone is free to go at the pace they feel comfortable, the dates are so we all can view everyones builds at different stages and so the judges can see a start to finish build.

contestants can choose to build their nanos at ther speed they like, but not providing the right pics or any pics could be deducted in points.

if anyone has any questions pls feel free to ask away here or pm me, im here to help with any confusion:)

09-10-2012, 05:01 PM
I have been on the fence, but finally decided. Sign me up for this.

09-11-2012, 02:27 AM
oh what the hell, if it's a free sign up count me in... I have an idea that will blow you guys outta the water. BOOM!

09-11-2012, 10:18 PM
Count me in!

this is going to be fun

09-14-2012, 07:41 PM
Yesss. Thanks I just read the rules quickly. Ill make it haha. So start and post in my build thread before spet 25th. Is there any special spot I should be making a thread on Canreefs?
Im new to this fourm but have years of saltwater adventures.

Ohh is there any prizes for winners? or this is for the heck of it? Just wondering it dont matter either way.


09-15-2012, 04:57 PM
nothing has to be done untill oct1 when the official contest starts , if you want to create your journal now thats fine.

read carefully the timeline for the contest, basically you can go at the pace your comfortable with but by certain dates youll need to document and post pics of certain things:)

here is a link to the contest forumn http://www.canreef.com/vbulletin/forumdisplay.php?f=233 , just click the link and it will take you to the forumn , then from there click "new thread"

in the header of the post is where you will give your jouranl its name, your would be " boxboy 2012 nano contest entry"

below that you make your first post as per the timeline details:)

ill add you to the list now, glad to have you aboard:)

there will be a prize....could be a stamp or a million dollars only i know for now lol but will be anounced before the contest starts:)

OK. I thought we had to follow the timeline precisely, not just post about each step by each set time.

In that case, I'm in.

09-15-2012, 11:48 PM
the best advice i can give everybody is take pics , write little things and notes etc and youll all do fine lol

the timeline is posted for pics and updates, if people post the wrong pics in the wrongs spots the judges are prob gonna pick up on that and who knows how they will see it, i have no say.

basically they are going off the timeline posted and the rules.....how they interpt them is up to them individually.

Sign me on up then scotty lol...I've got pics of stuff ect ill figure it out lol

09-16-2012, 05:28 PM
