hey everyone

nows the time to vote for your favorite nano , while there wasnt many that made it to the end we had a few who fought hard , it shows that setting up a nano and following a set of guidelines isnt as easy as alot of people think , very good job done by everyone and especially those who made it to the end , ive enjoyed reading your journals and you did amazing jobs.

below are the full list of candidates, not everyone participated but should have a chance at the voting .

your votes will play a small roll in contestant points so please read and award who you think did the best job on this years nano contest.

the judges are currently awarding points and winners will be announced on may 1rst.


cheers

I believe there was only 3 that actually made it to the end but its really easy to find the last post in all nano entries to check out the builds. It might be easier then posting pics of the nano's as not all made it.

1. I thought there were mystery judges?

2. Since you are asking us to vote, do we use our complete discretion? I thought only 3 or 4 contestants actually finished, but if I can vote for other contestants that didn't actually finish then can I vote for them on the merit of their design alone (even if they didn't execute) ?

Please advise!

How small of a roll are you talking about? As small as a spring roll? :mrgreen:

Why even include the people that never finished... It's just like todays school system.. 'ah little Johnny never passed 5th grade math, lets give him a second shot, well maybe a third...... (three days later) .Congratulations Johnny welcome to grade 6...... No finish no vote.... Rant is over.

the vote is %10 of the total points , if someone wins because they recieved the win in the poll id be very very very surprised....as in its not possible.

those who entered have the chance to at least 10pts, the judges take care of the rest.

its pretty simple ....

Seems odd to include people who never started, quit or didn't finish but to each their own I guess. I also think final tank pic's should of been posted so people would see what to choose from but that's just me. Anyway here is a final pic of my nano tank for people to see, in case they were wondering.

Ya there was a few people complaining cause you and myself went full speed ahead. But I fought for those of us who started early (when IMO it wasn't clear that you couldn't) and Denny did clarify that it was ok, but that judges might take some points away for it, leaving it up to their discretion. I really thought your tank was cool and would of loved to seen regular updates on it, I wish you hadn't stopped posting :sad:

Isin't there going to be any sort of campaign like "vote for me and get a free frag" or something? :D

No he quit half way through. It was a shame to as his concept for his tank looked cool.

Addressing Greg's free frags;
It all about hoarders that don't want to share with the rest of us :razz:.

Therefor being the nice person I am, I will be awarding a free frag of your choice for voting for me in the "vote for your favorite 2012 contest nano" thread.

I also feel Levi's tank is the nicest tank I have ever seen.

Lets see a pic of all from todays date. The one with the most votes by the way looks like some nicely placed new frags. Would like to see a pic of these tanks actually grown out a little bit.

The pic I posted of my tank was taken on the 14 of March. It's a 2.5g tank and I turned it from a maxi mini tank to a reef tank on Jan. 21/13. The corals have grown a tiny bit but not much in only 2 months. Ken from Blue World got some nice rare zoas in stock which (in part) inspired me to make the switch. Unfortunately my Eco pico led lights aren't very strong and the colour of the zoas and other corals don't show like they should. I do plan on upgrading the lights eventually (need to save up 1st) and I am getting a glass lid cut for my nano tank to let in more light (right now I have an egg create/mesh screen cover) which hopefully will help with colour and growth.

Thanks, I've always loved pico tanks and thought it'd be cool to have a mini reef. I used 3 pieces of live rock and hunted for ones I could create a cave and overhang with, I figured that just because it was tiny didn't mean it couldn't have a cool aquascape :biggrin: The biggest plus of this tank is being able to use/fill a red solo cup of water for water changes :mrgreen:

Just curious what size did you think it was?

Yes he meant April 1st, or at least in the original rules post it says judges will pick a winner on April 1st.
