Welcome to the first Planted Tank Image competition. There are a total of 5 entries for this competition. Please view the images first and then vote. There is only one voter per member, so vote wisely. Choose the image that you feel is the most appealing to you.

To view the images: http://www.plantedtank.net/forum/photocompetition.php

Hi Kyle, are you allowed to give out the contestantís names? If not could you try to find the name of the fish in the contestant #5 picture? Thanks.

I decided to keep the names anonymous until after the voting to stop any biased voting. After the competittion I'll be sure to tell you. If you do know magnus please keep it to yourself!

I agree with keeping the names anonymous. Just the same, I'd almost bet the paycheck I know who it was, too.

Very nice pictures...and fish! Where are the plants?

Fender--you probably mentioned this already, but is this going to be a monthly event? Possibly with varying themes or something?

Yes Imp,
I plan I making this a monthly possibly every other month thing. This first competition is sort of a test to see how it all goes. It all depends on how willing I can get some sponsors to be to donate prizes. I have a feeling that wont' be too hard.

OK Well I have an oppinion about the Quality Because If someone has a NICE expensive camera they can take NICE macro pictures! I think this should be on Aquascaping and Not How nice the pic is Because Some of us Arnt as Rich! Just My 2 Cents Not to be rude or anything!

It was never specified that this was a competition for image quality. That's why I said vote for the image that is most appealing for you. Also I scaled all of the pictures down to a maximum of 800 x 600 for this very reason.

Nope Tula, that isn't it since you didn't get to hear the full story since that topic was closed. I am willing to explain this to you but not on this forum.

You can send me a private message, which I will, of course, keep private. I have edited my previous message.
