Live in Austin? Got a planted tank you want to show off?

Hi all,

BuildMyLED is looking for planted tanks to photograph with its different spectrums for extra photographs, possibly for use on the forums, website, etc. We're looking for outstanding examples of the following--
  • Dutch-style aquascapes, heavily planted with lots of color
  • Nature aquarium-style 'scapes
  • Iwagumi-style 'scapes
These will need to have a strong layout, good healthy growth, and basically be a good-lookin' show-off sort of setup...however, they don't necessarily need to be high-tech (I've seen some lovely moss, Crypt, and fern contenders). If you think your tank might work, send me a PM and a pic...even if your tank is a few weeks of work and trimming and growth from being photo-ready, I'd like to hear from you!

Now for the important part...what do you get out of it? If we select your tank and professionally photograph it, you'll receive a free fixture! (Within reason, guys...don't set up a 5g nano in hopes of equipping your 180g with a free light. )

I've seen some really nice setups already, but I don't know everyone in the Austin area so if you think your tank has what it takes, please get in touch!

Happy new year,

Cara

I have a blackwater river style tank... Lots of sticks and leaves. There's only some random Java fern on things, a few hidden crypts, and a couple of big swordplants, though. I'm guessing you want more plants.

It never hurts to send me a pic, Betta132! We need photos on a variety of setups and they don't necessarily need to be heavily planted or high-tech, though that's often the aim of our customers. You can send pics directly to me at Cara@BuildMyLED.com. Thanks!
