    Hi everyone and welcome to our year long competition for 2018!
    Don't worry, this will not be the only competition held during the year as there will be other monthly competitions run during the other months.

    How to enter:
    For this exciting competition, you need to enter by submitting a picture of your tank as at January 2018.
    - Existing members will be allowed to submit entries up until 31 January 2018.
    - New members (joining in January 2018 to 31 March 2018) and existing members that are upgrading their tank will have until 31 March 2018 to submit an entry and subject to moderator approval.

    If you have more than one tank, you can enter both.

    Very Important Rules:
    - The competition is open to everyone registered on MASA and is in good standing.
    - Pictures can be taken with any kind of camera.
    - The aquarium/s must belong to you. Please do not adopt someone else's tank for this competition :lol:
    - More than one tank can be submitted.
    - Monthly updates are required. A thread in the competitions forum will be started every month for you to post a picture of your tank update and will remain opened until the 23rd of each month.
    - The update is mandatory, if you do not update you will be disqualified from the competition.
    - If you have added anything new/exciting/did an awesome DIY of some sort, please share on the thread.
    - The competition will close on the 30th November (the status update thread for that month will run until then).
    - The winners will be announced on the 15th December (pending staff availability and judging of the competition).

    Judging and Prizes:
    - The winner will be determined by the moderators. The post "likes" received will be considered but not the ultimate determining factor.
    - There will be spot prizes given during the course of this competition for biggest improvement over last few months, biggest lesson learned over last few months, most growth out of coral/fish over last few months, best DIY ideas etc if these are noted on the tanks entered.
    1st Prize: Redstarfish skimmer from Bryan at Jungle Aquatics

    Also additional spot prizes throughout the competition.

    Good luck and enjoy!

    Just a question @tekkengal . If an existing member is upgrading during the coarse of the first part of the year, say February or March, aren't they allowed to enter then?

    I'm entering a part of my system.
    Due to the frag tank being rather shallow I tried the panoramic setting on my cellphone. Came out I think OK, except for the dip in the middle.... :m04:

    I did clean out the tank in August. Since then the system just went downhill and over run with green algae. Lets see if I can get this restored to its former condition.
