Congrats to NCaquatics on your well planted very nice 20 gallon tank. Well deserved! This is your second Tank of the Month win and you will be awarded a profile banner showing the two wins.

Coming in second place was Eziofezio with his 28 gallon sunken warship themed tank. Very nice tank, Eziofezio.

Coming in third place was Vanalisa with her 20 gallon high nicely set up tank. Well done, Vanalisa.

For those who didn't win this month, keep improving your tanks and enter it in a future TOTM contest.

Our next TOTM contest starts on November 1st and will feature tanks sized at 31 gallons and larger. If you have a tank of that size, please consider entering the contest.

Remember, what's important is not whether you win or lose, what's important is that you participate in our contests. More participants make the contests more interesting.
