    The Contest:
    It is time yet again to show what overfeeding and direct sunlight can do. Got a well water reef? It is time for a FTS. The 2009 Ugly Tank Contest is open to contestants. We are looking for tanks that are ugly, in any way because of nuisance algae or cyano -despite my attempt at a clever title - GHA, film algae, and diatoms etc...are all welcome.

    Updated Rules:
    Submissions must have a full tank shot (FTS). Only that picture will count towards the contest, but other supporting close up photos are appreciated.
    You can reply to this thread to submit the photo.
    Pictures must be submitted by November 30th.
    We will be selecting the worst 4 tanks from those submitted. Each of these tanks will receive a $20 gift certificate.
    The four finalists will then have their tanks voted on by the public, and then the winner gets a CUC and a bad name. :)

    Winner gets a free custom clean up crew shipped!

    Show us how bad it can get! Be prepared for some good humored kidding, but please don't be embarrassed.
