The international aquatic plants layout contest

Hello folks, I just had the pleasure of visiting AFA (Aqua Forest Aquarium) in San Fran most of you know it as one of the ADA stores. Let me tell you it is amazing in person the sale tanks are just as neat as the display tanks. While I was there I picked up the 2010 and 2011 International Aquatic Plants Layout Contest books. These have pictures of every tank in the contest 1819 for 2010 and 1603 for 2011. (I really recommend you check them out when you get a chance) my question is this the tanks towards the end of the contest don't come close to the ones we all post on here and we can give some of the top tanks a run for their money, why is it that more of us don't submit our tanks into the contest? I'm going to look into what it takes to be part of this when I get back from my trip and I will post my findings here.

take in mind some of those tanks are trying to re-create specific environments or biotopes
