Congrats to @AquaBarb for your 125 gallon river themed tank. That is one nice meticulously planted and well stocked tank. You will soon receive a profile banner signifying that this is your third TOTM win. Your tank will be added to our TOTM Wall of Fame. Well deserved win!
Coming in 2nd place is @Carp890 with their 200 litre heavily planted nicely set up tank. Lookin' good, Carp890!
And coming in 3rd place is @Razzmatazz with his 135 gallon very colorful superbly planted and well stocked aquarium. Great job!

Thanks go out to everyone who participated in this month's Tank of the Month contest.
