    Are you thinking about an Ecoxotic EcoPico? Now you can win one for free on 3reef! We are looking for a photo from your tank - heavily altered - that's right - we want to see ALTERED photos for a change. Something cool! Do you have the skills? Let's see them. Take a photo, have fun changing it up - then stamp "Thinkin' EcoPico" on it and post on the official submission thread later this week. You might win a tricked-out Ecoxotic EcoPico with more LED strips courtesy of 3reef Sponsor Ecoxotic!
