Congrats NCaquatics on a well deserved win. You will soon receive a TOTM winner banner in your profile area.

Coming in second place was Retired Viking. In third place was Meg0000. Congrats to the two of you. Overall, we had 114 members vote in the contest..interest in our contests is growing.

For those who didnt win or didnt enter, keep improving your tanks and enter again in a later TOTM contest. Practice makes perfect!

NEXT UP is our Pet of the Month contest. You may enter any one of your household pet except fish. Entries will be accepted from today till May 20. So take a pic of your household pet and be ready to enter. When entry period starts, you will see a banner announcing it at the top of our forums.

Thanks to all those who participated in this month's Tank of the Month Contest.

Salty, 5 people thought your tank was the best. Keep improving on it and re-enter in a future contest. It’s not whether you win or lose that is important.. it’s that you participated. More entrants make the contest more interesting.
