Tank of the Month Contest

We had 10 awesome tanks entered in this month's TOTM contest featuring tanks sized at 31 US gallons and larger. But only one could win...

And the winner is.......
Let's all congratulate him
Here's the winning tank and its description

Hello all!
This is my 2 1/2 month 36 gallon BF planted tank.
Lighting is a Finnex 24/7 CRV LED fixture.

Filtration consist of a Seachem Tidal 55, a Hygger double sponge filter driven by a Tetra Whisper 40 air pump, and a cheapo internal filter with a spray bar which is used for surface agitation and poly fill is placed inside for water polishing.

Inhabitants consist of Neon and Rummynose tetras, Harlequin Rasboras, Panda Corys, Otocinclus and a pair of Honey Gouramis

Plants consist of various Anubias, Crypts, Java fern, Pogestemon, Amazon sword, Ludwigia and Dwarf Tiger Lotus.

Twice a week 10 to 12 gallon wc are done and testing parameters are performed the night before a wc. Seachem Prime is added to new tank water, Stability and Pristine is added after.

For plant fertilzers, Easy Green and Easy Iron is dosed a few hours after a wc and Seachem Flourish the following day. I only dose 1/2 the recommendations. Root tabs are also used.

Parameters holds steady at 0/0/10, PH at 7.4, temp is 77F, GH at 7.

Still learning a lot about the hobby and being on this forums definitely increased my knowledge.
Congrats go out to Razzmatazz on your very nice planted tank which includes nice driftwood in a nicely set up 36 gallon bowfront tank. Well deserved win.

Finishing in second place is Anthony1976 with his super nice 165 litre well planted tank. Good job, Anthony!

Finishing in third place is Wolfey, with his 33 gallon Jewel Rio nicely set up planted tank. Well done, Wolfey!
