Tank #1. You're on the right track. I think once you establish some more plants, and maybe add a few more details to the foreground and such it will look even better, but it looks good.

Tank #2. Simply incredible. I can't imagine the time or the wallet it took to have that installed. Definitely a neat piece. The rock structure in the middle is a nice focal point, but personally I'm distracted by things like the little pharoah sitting in the bottom right of the tank. That's just my personal opinion.

Tank #3. Algae control, algae control, and more algae control.

Tank #4. I really like this one. It's subtle, yet vibrant. The black sand really makes the rest of the tank pop.

Tanks #5. This is my dream room. One day... One question, though. Why are there so many filters on that back tank? Are you seeding them with bacteria for other tanks?

Tank #6. To be completely honest, the picture is just small enough that I can't really make out any details of the tank. Bring the camera in a little bit closer.

Tank #7. I like this one as well. It reminds me of one of those Asian gardens.

Tank #8. This one really does it for me. The way the plants blend from tall to short really adds to the eye-appeal. The driftwood is a great addition as well. That's a tank to be proud of.

Tank #9. I wish I knew more about saltwater so I could have a more knowledgeable opinion. I have seen my fair share of nano cubes though, and as far as they go this one is pretty impressive.

Tank #10. I like the idea. I've thought about doing this many times with fidler crabs or frogs or something like that, but have never gotten around to it. What exactly do you have in there?

For tank 5, there are so many filters because I wanted to use two smaller ones rather than one big one but the smaller ones started leaking!

Since when did TOTM start being entry-anonymous? :P

My tank is #10, and it has a mudskipper, pepper Cory cats, and feeder endler/guppies

My tank is tank is #2.... I completed the rock word and the wood work over the past few nights. I only submitted a front shot but I completed the rest working late, I just wanted to try and get my den back and claim my house back.

I like that the entries were anonymous! That way, I was voting for the tank only, and guessing whose tanks they were! They are some nice tanks, btw.

Mine was number 1. Thanks for all the support to get it that way! I'm currently establishing a mystery species of rams. (cant really identify and to skittish to get a pic) I plan to add more plants, a little bit more vertical driftwood and a school of cardinals.

I would have to say tank #4. I like the clean and simple aqua scape. I love the contrast with the greens and blacks and then the brown limb thrown in the middle

Wow! Who knew I would be so rediculously pleased with myself for winning an aquarium contest? Honestly, I feel like the Mardi Gras queen on fat Tuesday! Now, If I can just get my better half to genuflect whenever I enter a room...

All TOTM and POTM contests are designed to be anonymous. You should not be giving away which tank/photo is yours until polls have closed. Any questions go take a look at the rules in the POTM section
