    The Contest:

    Did you actually trust the neighbor kid to watch the tank while you were out of town? Have your fish trained you to feed them when they approach the glass? Then your tank is probably ugly! If so, good news! It is time. The 6th Ugly Tank Contest is open to contestants. We are looking for tanks that are ugly, neglected, and covered in slime.

    The Rules:

    Submissions must have a full tank shot (FTS). Only that picture will count towards the contest, but other supporting close up photos are appreciated.

    You can reply to this thread to submit the photo.


    Pictures must be submitted by June 30th.


    We will be selecting the worst 7 tanks from those submitted. Each of these tanks will receive a $10 gift certificate. Each of the finalists will then vote for the tank they think is the worst, but are not allowed to vote for their own tank.

    Winner gets a free custom clean up crew shipped to clean the tank, or a refund for any custom crew that was purchased during the tank contest time.



    Plus! Each entrant gets a $5 gift certificate. You will have to send me an email or pm with the code you want to use. Just something simple will work, like "Hey John, I posted a photo in the ugly tank contest, I want my code to be "jmaloney" " Just make sure to put the code in quotes or on a separate line.

    Show us how bad it can get! Be prepared for some good humored kidding, but please don't be embarrassed. If algae didn't happen I would be out of a job.

    To Enter:

    Simply post a picture here. We will combine with other pictures from around the net into our contest thread located on our webpage, and update this thread with the details as they become available.


    Major Updates will be posted on this page, so if you are a contestant you will want to subscribe to it. Best of luck to you all, I hope your aquariums are hopeless! [​IMG]

    Hopefully cleaning the tank isn't what is keeping you busy. Time to put the snooze button on that and take a picture. :)

    I think I tried to enter the last one, but as luck would have it, my tank is still ugly. I havent harvested algae in two weeks.

    I love this thread!

    I haven't had ugly tank issues with my current tank (but don't worry I've done aquariums enough to know the day will come for me eventually).

    That said, I'm pretty sure I can win an ugliest wavemaker contest. This was so ugly, I threw it out and upgraded to an RW-8. (It's a WP-25).

    The middle one looks good. Anytime you can't see what's in the actual tank, that's the right track!

    That is definitely competitive. If you had some out of control Green Bubble Algae in there, I think it'd be very tough to beat.

    I recently re-read Lovecraft's "Shadow over Innsmouth" for no good reason and I'm fairly certain in some of the protagonist dreams he mentioned that Y'ha-nthlei, undersea home of the Deep Ones, is shown to have Aiptasia gardens betwixt fields of GBA. It was very frightening! Then again, I was reading it late at night so that may have been just me...
