    Thanks George,

    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.

    :thumbup: for UKAPS entrants :D

    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

    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.

    Way to wipe out the competition, George :lol: 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, all!

    I'm thrilled with my results - really thrilled. :D 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. :D

    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!!

    Cheers! :D

    Hell yeah! Nice one George for making everyone realise this :thumbup: :clap:

    (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 :twisted: :rolleyes: :lol: )
