    Hi all,

    Long time no annoy :)

    So, was clearing up, getting rid of all my stuff, and decided that rather than sell EVERYTHING, I would rather start my own competition to give it to someone that REALLY could use it to get started. First whats up for grabs:
    • 12kg Of Fake Rock/ Baserock, I havent kept this live, but it seeds really well
    • 2 x T8 Ballasts
    • 1 x TS1 Skimmer (perfect working order)
    • 1 x Floating hydrometer
    • 1 x 3ft Quarantine Tank (includes 50W heater and internal powerhead/filter combo)
    • 2 x 1100l/hr Boyu pumps
    Now the RULES!!!
    • SORRY OKES!!! ONLY AVAILABLE IN JOBURG!! Winner MUST be able to fetch goods, otherwise will be passed to the next winner.
    • Please NOMINATE the most helpful newbie of the year
    • Preferably a newbie that is a student, and under 25 years old
    • Preferably not a newb with loads of bucks :) Penniless is good in this case
    • I will collate the answers over the next 7 DAYS, and then take the top 3 newbs and start a poll for 3 days to choose a winner
    • I will choose those names after consulting with mods (just to make sure no newb is voting for himself, having his buddies vote for him/her or other such undemocratic behaviour)
    • My decision is final :p
    • Oh, my decision REALLY IS final heheheh
    • While this is aimed at the Yoof, Julias Malema and his mob are banned from entering
    • I cannot be bribed, not even with beer:peroni:
    Seriously folks, I would like to give this stuff to a seriously deserving, helpful and knowledgable newbie that is having a hard time getting started, we have ALL been there. Please nominate someone that truly deserves it, lets make someones year here.

    Cheers

    Marc

    PS: ask for photies and I will disqualify your asses :)

    I was shocked to see Tremayne's name as a nominee coz I've seen alot his posts giving sound advice and he didn't strike me to be a noob! He seemed to give advice like many of the wise old toppies here ..... None the less he has my vote ......
