    Win everything in the pic above (except for the fish, you can't have the fish) by entering our competition, in conjunction with Reef Aquatics, thanks to Andre for providing the prize.


    COMMON REEFING PROBLEMS WITH SOLUTIONS

    To enter, you must do the following:

    Create a thread (in the competition forum) with details about a problem you encountered, preferably with a picture, then detail the solution you used to overcome or solve the problem, preferably closing with a picture of the problem solved.

    Some examples: You had a tank full of cyanobacteria and what you did to get rid of it. Or fish with whitespot and how you cured it. Or rock riddled with aiptasia and how you got rid of it. Or how you overcame an oxygen deficiency in your tank. etc. etc.

    Have fun, shout if you have any questions.

    Rules:

    1. You must start a separate thread for each problem. Threads to be started in the Competitions Forum Competitions - Marine Aquariums South Africa

    2. All entries must come from your OWN aquarium.

    3. Competition only open to residents of South Africa.

    4. You may enter as many times as you like.

    5. We reserve the right to change these rules to suit ourselves. :tt2: Just kidding.

    Competition closes on the 30th November 2014. :)

    Is there a RO unit in the prize or is it just the refill components?

    Hi ScottK good question, not too sure what exactly @viper357 has in mind but this seems logical.

    My thoughts are the judges could decide the winner based on the following criteria.

    Judge each point out of 10

    1) The severity of the problem (5)
    2) Ingenuity to solve the problem, methods used to fix this problem (7)
    3) The entry write up detailing the problem being clear and concise, not too much detail but enough i.e easy to understand an follow (4)
    4) Before and after pic (8)
    5) Overall usefulness to the next reefer who encounters the same problem (8)

    Total score of 32.

    The entry with the highest score wins. Now you will probably ask what if 2 guys have the same score, then I would say the prize goes to reefer who got their entry in first.

    Last few days to get your entries in Reefers. A great opportunity to give your RO unit the makeover it needs.
