Wonderful ideas everyone! I'd reply more but just want to read and not comment until judging time. =) I have seen a few prospective favorites already!

The Recycled Tank Contest

Purchase and furnish a tank completely from used materials (ie. thrift store finds, hand me down tanks, etc.). The winner would need to provide pictures of the items before and after to show how much each item changed before it was placed into the tank.

I love that idea, Peachii! There's just one problem - here in Australia, our dollar is nearly on parity with the USA dollar, but because we get higher wages, everything is more expensive - e.g. a standard 5 gal new is about $90. So, even though our we'd get to spend maybe $1.10, we wouldn't be able to buy anything. :p

Ouch we can get a 5 gal starter tank with led lights and filter for $27.00

OK, if that would be an issue for other countries - I can Understand that. So would need to check that and see what the equivalent to other countries 1.00 stores/discount items sell things for. USA we would have no problem finding knick knacks to use for 1.00, maybe foreign countries need to be 2.00?

---------------

- Added this idea in case the 1.00 idea needed to be disqualified for fairness for other countries :) I didn't think of that when i had the idea for that contest. Or the 2 can even be added together to make one contest to decorate the tanks ( I can't edit the original post, it's been to long)

Also had the idea of Create the Ornaments for your tanks yourself. A few bottles of Aquarium Safe Glue and you can create lots of neat and awesome things to decorate your tanks, without even spending more than the cost of the glue. :)

Contest Proposal-

Create from scratch your own tank decorations.

Utilize any items you find/purchase but have to create the actual design of the item yourself using whatever aquarium safe glue/epoxy/etc that you have or purchase.

1 entry per person. Can make one or more decorations and they need to be pictured in the completed tank with your betta in the tank with it. (the betta is not the focal point of the picture just to show you did indeed use Aquarium safe glue and items, as none of us would risk our bettas to unsafe items or glue :))

List what you used and the type of glue/etc you used to hold the items together and what you think of it as far as how it worked, how well it held the items together and if you would use it again for craft ideas for your aquarium.

The contest idea

How about making a birthday photo-card for your daughter?
Each contestant take a picture of their current tank with betta fish in it and make it as a birthday card using Photoshop. The card with great birthday wishes for your daughter would be plus.
And the winner would be chosen by vote (50% vote from your daughter- which card your daughter react the most and like it best and other 50% from judges)

What do you guys think?
