For those of you who are participating, or just wondering what the rules for the Nano Contest are, here they are:
1. Display size no larger than 30 gallons
2. Sump no larger than display, and not shared with another tank.
3. Start date of December 1st
4. Contest ends probably mid-summer of 2006
5. Mandatory build photos if the tank is starting from scratch
6. At minimum, monthly tank pictures (the more the better) along with tank updates (feel free to set up and use the blog)
7. Detailed descriptions of equipment/inhabitants/etc
These rules may change slightly, but for the most part, they're set.
Let me know if you have any questions.
