OK...so we have been tossing around ideas for a new contest and I think we settled on a DIY contest that we will be running once a quarter. Each contest will run for 3 months giving people plenty of time to plan, document and complete a project. It can be anything from a simple divider to a innovative filtration system. The only requirement will be easy to follow directions with pictures. I am working out the details with Nichole and Aquascape on the prize. Most likely a fish shipped to your door in the US...something else for foreigners. What we need are some foreign sponsors so we can hook up those guys as well.....something I can look into. Or if you know of someone...send me a pm and I will see what I can work out.

Anyways...look for this in early January 2013!

Working out the prize details on this with nichole but I think a contest end date of 6/30 is good. That gives people plenty of time to design and build an entry. We will have prizes for at least first and second.

Couple rules.....

must have something to do with the pet hobby and be a true DIY project with directions and pictures others can follow.



Might enhance the rules later on but I doubt it. We want people to build our project selection so think outside the box!
