One Gallon Competition!

At walmart they are selling one gallon minibows for $14.99. I was thinking if this was a common thing, we should do a pico competition. Maybe with fabulous prizes.

I'd love to participate in something like that. I just saw some of those 1g minibows you're talking about at our Wal-Mart this past weekend.

Let's say everyone has till next Monday to scrounge up the $15 dollars for the 1g minibow. We should keep it as the one gallon for consistency's sake.

I saw this today at another walmart... Perfect for replacing the tiny screw in incandecent.
edit: You might want to poke some holes in the back of the hood with a hot fork... my lightbulb made things a bit melty...
I was thinking of what prize to offer, and I'd like to offer 5 light green shrimp. These guys are fatties that like to hang upside down on leaves.

Hey, d'ya think we're all rich here or something?



I'd love to see a 1-gallon competition. How strict would that be - exactly one gallon capacity, one gallon actually in the tank with everything else, anything 1 gallon and under... ?

All right, I guess it would be pretty unfair to have people go out and buy one. How about just one gallon. Everyone probably has that one hawk eye triangle one that doesn't really fit anywhere from back in the newbie days.

Same question here. My camera went kaputz, so I need to know what the time line would be. See if I'll have time to get a new camera (not sure WHEN that will happen - waiting to see right now), so I know for sure that I can participate.

(Please, please, please get new camera soon! I'm going through withdrawals! )

Starting to look like the thread title needs to be changed from:

To:

Here's what I managed with my one gallon (but I'm not in the competition of course). You can't see the HC or the HM in back since I only put little single stalks in the substrate. Weeping moss for foreground, some sorts of small stems in the back. That random white rock on top is holding down the christmas moss till it attaches.

Please PM me if you'd like to join in the competition so I can make a list.

Here's what I'd like to offer as the winning prize:

5 light green shrimp and a few mystery shrimp. I'll pay shipping.

Runner up gets a few mystery shrimp, shipping paid by me.

Must PM me by Monday (May 19th, by midnight) and post a picture of your newly planted ONE GALLON tank/jar/vase/tupperware/clear container.
Then in two weeks we post an update, and have votes open for three days (closes June 4th).
Sound ok?

edit: Err, forgot to attach the pictures!

Oh wow, fast deadline! Could we get 1 week to buy supplies and stuff? I have to get stuff online, since the stores here don't carry plants.
