Congratulations to all entries from UK.
i've met with many of your tanks there. this year the competition was much stronger and had more great tanks in each category which is really good.
for UKAPS entrants
Oh wow still checking the results but looks like George you dominate in the biotope category
Nice work man
a MASSIVE round of applause is in order for George in my opinion.
A very strong biotope category and George had some outstanding results and great feedback from the Judges.
1st, 3rd and Honorable Mention
Nice one Farmer
A huge well done to George
I won't have time to check out the contest website until later, But George, You the man.
wow! Go George, nice one mate. Just trying to look through them now but its slower than a one-legged arthritic fly at the mo
Congrats George and everyone else who entered! Just waiting for it to load up at the moment
i wonder if this quote was meant to be edited before publication
I quite liked the scape.
It is a shame this great competition is always published on a website that is so slow.......
I wil have to wait for a few weeks untill less visitors come to the site to be able to view it all without getting to frustrated.
Awesome scapes - congratulations to everyone who entered! George - you're a legend! Cracking stuff!
Way to wipe out the competition, George I'm really glad the biotope part of the competition has stepped up.
Those are some gorgeous tanks all around.
I thought that too!
Has anyone else noticed the increased use of Fissidens?
Many many congratulations George, a near clean sweep there mate, doesn't get better than that for sure. Your first place biotope is a stunner, so simple yet so natural, very well put together, the wood placement in the tank is excellent IMO. A clear standout winner in the biotope section, well deserved.
Has anyone else noticed the increased use of extremely wide angle lenses!
For those saying the site is so slow etc, download the torrent from this page and you can view the tanks at your leisure, you basically download the whole competition, took me about 2 mins to download it, mind you I have a 10mb connection. Total download is 115mb, I used Vuze and it pretty much did everything automatically for me.
Get the torrent here
Thanks mate, much better
Yep, almost seems like standard practice now.
cheers for that link zig. will download it later when home
I'm thrilled with my results - really thrilled. I had an email saying 'congrats' from one of the judges, Jason Baliban first thing this morning. He's also judging the UKAPS Pico Contest.
I'm also really happy with the quantity of biotope entries this year - up 500% on last year!
The overall standard has gone up again, IMO. Some beautiful and innovative layouts, as well as some awesome 'classic' Nature Aquarium style aquascapes.
I'll be sinking a few cold ones tonight to celebrate! Sticklebacks rule!!
Hell yeah! Nice one George for making everyone realise this
(My first tank, conceived back in the dark ages before the internet existed, was a stickleback biotope, but I hear laughing every time I mention that. I think people think I am joking )
Just had a proper look through the contest website,
A round of applause goes to the Ukaps particpants
Apologies if i've missed anyone.
Fantastic job George, not only did a Brit win the biotope category, but with a British Biotope as well , next time we meet can i have your autograph
