So I was interested in doing this because I've never done a contest like this before. Usually just the photo ones and nothing long term or that involves spending money. So I remembered a 3 gallon deco on clearance, so I'm in. I'll be doing mine on a tight budget, a good amount will come from my tank. I'm think mostly zoa's and a chalice, but I expect a birdsnest to appear sometime because I love them. They'll be no fish, only a few inverts for the cleaner crew. I'll be using the stock filter it came with, and for now the 18w CF light, though I'm upgrading the bulb. I plan to be taking pics at each step. So for the first photo, a dry tank.
