Lightbulb Contest for plants!

Hi guys!
I did this somewhere else before, but thought I should bring the fun here too =D

Select a number from 1-999
This is a raffle for some small plants which I will be trimming from my tanks sent in a 4x4 box. Shipping is only to the lower 48 states....and will be paid for.


Photo Sample


Eligibility
  • To be eligible for this contest, you must post a picture of a plant ready tank, really all that means, is to have a 5000k - 10 000k light bulb that provides medium+ lighting and a decent substrate. ( I mean you would want these plants to survive in your tanks right?)

    For 1-5 gallons, this isnt particularly hard, you can make do with a table lamp and a 13-23w 6500k cfl, depending on your tank size.

Entry form:
Code:
Username: (your username)
Photo: (photo of plant ready tank here)
Reason: (why you want plants. make it up if you need to...)
Updated Entries List: (copy list of all entrants so far from the
previous entry and add your own number and name in numerical order
- Any number that has not been used and is between 1-999)

Reason: Would like more plant variety. I have two tanks so far that are planted, and am hoping to add more soon. The picture is 1 of my 5gs. It is a few months old, but it's still up and running. thanks for the chance! Very generous of you!

Why I want plants for my aquarium: I always wanted to have a planted tank and I thought winning this contest would be the best way to get them. I know the picture sucks, but I had to use my webcam.

I am starting a new planted tank for my incoming Copper Betta. It needs more variety as the photo shows. I just got the light so I can grow plants that need more then low light plants.

nice tanks XD
Shaina, I dont think that light can keep plants alive :P if your light runs on a CFL You can get a 6500k cfl light :)

I think I'll have to find lower light plants for this group XD

When I get more money I am buying a better light, also, my tank is near the window so it gets natural light too. :)

Reason: I love the natural jungle look. planted tanks are a lot better to look at. They put me in a sort of relaxed mood.
