Happy Holidays from CaptiveReefs! Lets get some colorful holiday cheer going with the Showcase forums and enter to win our Holiday Photo Contest! (When you post in the Showcase forums your photo will display on the homepage slideshow and Showcase tabs.) 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

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.
