    Aquascaping Competition at America's Family Pet Expo - NOW OPEN

    Hello all!

    The Pet Expo aquascaping competition has been posted to the show website. We have expanded to 12 tanks, but there are currently only 9 positions left open. Fluval has graciously upgraded the tanks to the new 14.5 gallon Flora tanks. This is great, because the tanks are a little larger, the lights are better, and the CO2 has returned. I am excited to see how these all turn out.

    You can sign up on the events page of the Pet Expo website: www.petexpooc.org

    Feel free to contact me with any questions!

    (Sorry if I posted this to the wrong area. I never remember where to put these things.)

    Cost is $120. It includes a Fluval Flora 14.5G kit, which is roughly around a $200 value. The top 3 prizes win cash $$$, and there are only 12 entries available. Those odds are not too bad. You must supply your own hardscape and plants. We will have a few substrates to choose from...unless you want to use your own.

    This is a great way to practice your scaping skills, have a bit of friendly competition, and hang out with a lot of people that are passionate about planted aquariums!

    Did I mention that the contest comes with free access to the Pet Expo and includes a parking pass?

    Thanks for the vote of confidence buddy but I saw some of last year's entries and some were quite good. The way I figure it, at the very least I will end up with a cool full set that I can display in my fish room... whenever I get that done. Hehe!

    I am tempted! Not likely to win, but it seems like a pretty good deal and I can farm most of the plants myself between now and then.

    You set up your tank ďliveĒ, correct?
    I am an old dog trying to learn some new tricks...

    You set up your tank “live”, correct?
    The tank is set up live, so that everyone can start from the same level. The cool thing is that this allows the Pet Expo attendees to watch the process. Interacting with these attendees gives a great opportunity to grow the SCAPE membership.

    Lol. I have been practicing something for this year on a tank similar to the previous two years, but the light that this one comes with does not meet the build idea that I have been working on! ****it!


    Arethe bottoms of these tanks see through (clear?)

    Some pics show it fogged in, others black, and the fluval advertising page for the product is under construction.
