    Default 2012 Nano Contest Gauging Interest

    I'm interested to see how many members would in interested in doing a nano contest. The last one we did ran from January to May. I'm envisioning rules being similar to what we had last time with total tank volume being less than 30 gallons. But also open to suggestions for any improvements we can make to the process. Here is a link to last year's rules.

    I'm not sure what the prize will be just yet, but of course it would be a nice one. Last year it was an LED light fixture from nano customs.

    Please post if you have any interest in being in a nano contest.

    Orphek, is going to donate an LED pendant that will be awarded to the winner! The prize will be a DIF50 20K - 50 watt LED emitter with 90 degree lens which is rated for up to a 24x24-inch tank.

    Sure. It just has to be a fresh start at the beginning of the contest.

    Nope. You could have a 20 gallon tank and a 10 gallon sump though.

    Hey Jim, depending on timing and work schedule (around the tank kickoff), I'm interested.
