Since September 9th is Captive Reefing's 1st Anniversary, I had mentioned to some of our judges that It might be fun to try something new with Tank Of The Month. I thought it might create a new interest in our monthly competition, and open it up more to all the members of the board....meaning people with brand new tanks, and those of you out there that have gorgeous tanks but for some reason or another don't feel your tank is ready to be in the monthly contest. If my opinion counts for anything, I feel that everyone's tank is a winner, even if you are just beginning. We all know how difficult and rewarding our chosen hobby has turned out to be! It's fun, takes brain power, it's expensive, and it takes a long time to fill that big box of water full of wonder without starving your family or neglecting your bills. We all do what we have to do to get a special piece for our tank here and there.
Anyway, maybe we could do something like a "Picture of the Month" sometime. I still think it would be fun to do this, but Dakar already started TOTM in the usual manner for this month, and there's some beautiful tanks submitted already!! It's to late for this month, but it might be something all of you want to try in the future.
We're looking forward to seeing that page fill up with more entries! Don't forget, you can always nominate a tank that you think is deserving of the TOTM title. Just make sure that you post a picture of the nominated tank in the gallery so that the judges and the rest of the group know which tanks are being voted on!
**]JUDGES: Please accept my apologies for any confusion this may have caused to the judging panel, and anyone else who may have heard that there may be a change for this month. This also means that the judges that were on duty for TOTM still are needed. Please let either Dakar or me know so we know that you still are interested in your judging duties for the month.
