    Lesser Awards:



    Winner of the Worst Submission of the Year: (Central Valley Reefs) - no prize, just the shame of having a good looking tank


    [​IMG]

    - This "Way too nice to be in a Ugly Tank Contest" tank didn't measure up, and came in dead last according to the judges.




    Winner of the "Best Use of Nuisance Algae Award:" (3reef)
    Prize: When Macro comes back in season I will pick out something nice for the tank and ship it off to you. Just remind me in 2 months or so.

    Lots of seahorse keepers would love to have this tank.

    These tanks are all very ugly! :) They are without a doubt in my mind the four worst looking tanks in existence, or at least all of them are in the bottom 10. :) Number 3 might not look that way, but here is a pic of what it used to look like:

    so, that weighed into my decision. Check back again as we round up the judges and choose a winner.

    THE WINNER WILL BE ANNOUNCED ON THIS PAGE:
    ReefCleaners.org | Clean Up Crews and Macro Algae - Ugly Tank Contest 2: Cyano's Revenge - Results - Support Forum

    Thanks again for everyone who participated, and for being good sports. A lot of the joy we get from hosting the Ugly Tank Contest is poking fun at the contestants a little bit, and I appreciate you all for putting up with it. :)

    you should! it takes a great deal of slacking to make the top 4. Even though there are only 50 something pictures here, we got in over 200 altogether with the close ups and what not. Add in the hundreds of people that didn't even think their tank was worthy enough to enter, and yours is one of the 4 worst out of thousands! That bad! :)

    hehehe
