    Big thanks to all who voted for my tank. To Roden and Deanasue.... you have very nice tanks and should enter again soon.

    I urge other members to enter in the coming months. More entries make the contest more interesting. Next TOTM contest is very soon so take a nice photo of your tank or make a YouTube video and then enter it in one of the upcoming monthly contests.
