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.

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.

Reason: I am dying to make an NPT in my sorority tank and dont have enough different species of plants...I'm putting all my extra money towards getting the right kind of soil and sand for substrate so I dont have extra for plants at the moment.

Reason - There is a male in my tank 0.o what could be a better reason then that?? Ok, seriously - the red things in the front didnt do so well so I have bald spots in the tank. And the bigger poofy rust colred foxtail like plant seems to like floating better then the sand. So I have alot of surface cover but not so much ground cover anymore. Maybe I should replant them with a root tab nearby?
