Happy Holidays from CaptiveReefs! You might have noticed we've decked the site out for the holidays. Lets take it a step further and get some colorful holiday cheer going with the Showcase forums! (When you post in the Showcase forums your photo will display on the homepage slideshow and Showcase tabs.) While I'm envisioning colorful livestock that is red or green...you can enter any coral, fish, or invert that you feel captures the holiday spirit.
To enter you will need to add your photo entry to the applicable CR
Showcase forum: Coral Collector Forum Fish Finder Forum Invert Index
Be sure to select the Deck the Halls
from the drop down when you start your thread. When you enter your photo in one of the above forums, you must also complete the thread fields to the best of your knowledge. Completion of the fields will be taken into accounts when choosing the finalists.
If you want a little more information on how to add your corals to one of the showcase forums, here is a tutorial
This month's prize is a Reef Shelf donated by The Alternative Reef
This is a photo of a similar shelf...I will update this thread when I have a photo of the exact one.

Based on the number of entries submitted, a number of semi-finalists (10% of the entries will be semi-finalists) will be selected by jimsflies and the previous two POTM winners. Semi-finalists will be posted for the general membership to vote on their favorite. In the event of a tie, the tied entries will be reposted for a tie breaking vote with the general membership. Should we receive 10 or less entries, the judging panel will decide the winner. Photos will be judged on topic, composition, and quality.
