I want to do one more contest before school starts so here we go, betta tank contest!! bettafish.com is not associated with this contest, this contest is run by me alone. permission given by Olympia.

RULES​

1. This is a photo contest, photos only.
2. The tank must be yours, it can be a past tank but absolutely no random Internet pictures or cheating.
3. This is a tank contest, so I am asking for tanks only, no bowls.
4. The tank must be a betta tank, your tank can have other fish/animals but it must have at least 1 betta in it (or more if its a sorority/divided).
5. Your photo must show the betta in the tank.
6. It does not have to show every bit of the tank but the photo should cover the majority of the tank.
7. You can submit more than 1 photo but it must be the same tank.
8. No special effects or enhancing allowed since not all members have access to these programs, you can have a watermark though.

JUDGING​
I will be one of the judges, if anyone else want to judge you can PM me and let me know, there are unlimited judging spots, you just have to be able to communicate on time by PM. oh, btw, you cannot enter if you choose to judge. Other judges will be revealed at the end of the contest. Please don't ask on this thread! thanks!!​

Lol I was reading the rules and I scrolled down and I was like "Heeeeyyy! That's my girl!" lol I love that wallpaper btw!

Anyway, I'd like to enter my Marineland Eclipse 3 tank. It's a 3 gallon tank, a slight bow front which makes it very interesting indeed. Currently it holds one occupant; Ditto the HMDT Chocolate Betta boy.

Plants are as follows:
Dwarf Hairgrass (Currently making a carpet out of it)
Red Rotala
A few growths of Microsword
1 stem of Bacopa Caroloiniana
2 Anubias Nana
1 floating Water Sprite
1 small Planted Water Sprite
1 Small Marimo Ball
A small cluster of Cryptocoryne Parva
1 Small Driftwood piece

This is a regular planted tank with Black Tahitian Moon Sand as substrate, a T5 6,500K fluorescent tube and SeaChem Flourish with 1 drop per gallon once a week along with half root tabs (4) throughout. It see's 10 hours of light each day.

Soooo question for you. The tank I want to enter is my Japanese Garden themed tank. The best pictures I have of it are before I put the fish into it, although I do have at least a few of the fish in the tank. Can I enter the ones without the fish AND at least one with a fish to prove it has an inhabitant? Or would that not be allowed?

Oooh, yay!!

This is my Japanese Garden themed tank, which has been used by two different fish (with a thorough cleaning between the two, of course lol). It is a cycled 5.5 gallon with black and white gravel as substrate and currently the home of Hiei, my copper dragon HMPK. It used to house my pastel pink VTDT (veiltail doubletail... haven't seen many of those on here, so I hope that acronym is right! lol) Zen.



View from above! ^^ To show off the white "river" hee hee

Zen checking out his new home shortly after being released.

Hiei, the current inhabitant, showing off for his neighbor~

Here's my 20 gallon long community tank. It was a sorority once but unfortunately a wicked infection knocked out all of my girls. SO now it's home to some cories, tetra, and one pretty white see through looking girl named Mizuki. You can sort of see her in the upper left.



Here's a better shot of her. She was a Petsmart find.



Here's one of the albino cories in his never ending search for food.

This is my 10g sorority, home to seven girls and one very large snail that I just found today.



There are way too many plants in here to count, yet I still feel as if I need some more... :p

EDIT** Just realized that all seven girls are actually in the photo! It was feeding time! Bonus!

This is Kafae's (female Mahachaiensis) tank. I'm still working on it, and it may look small, but you're actually viewing it from the short side, not the front, and it's a 2.5 gallon tank.


and here she is to prove that someone actually does live there.

This is my betta sorority tank, home to 7 girls; Fishizzle, Queen Mistivious, River, Fire, Arka, and two who are unnamed because I can't tell them apart XD
10 Gallon, planted with some random stuff.
Not much, but I thought I might try to give it a shot.

Of course, I'd redecorate her tank AFTER I entered though! LOL

Canis, your sorority looks fantastic!

I really want to participate in this contest, but my sorority has algea problems in their temporary 60 litre/15 gallon and in about 2-3 weeks they're moving to my 450 litre/120 gallon tank... So, I can't participate :(
