Well, I've just submitted my entry.

It's basically a grown-in version of the 60cm opti-white I set up for PFK, supplied by Aqua Essentials. It's my best yet and the photography does it justice too. Pity I can't share it yet!

So, who else is entering? Deadline is 31st May...

Don't have a tank to enter, mine would just be laughed at and thrown in the bin LOL
Can you show the photos after the deadline? or just after the winners are announced?

Any idea who else is entering?

Me, Dan, Tom...

I hope we have more than three UK entrants. That's all we had last year and surely the UK aquascaping scene has improved in 12 months...?

I think I'll enter my 20g just for the sheer hell of it. Why not!?!? Haha. If I can get some decent photos of my nano I'll enter that instead.

Well, the number of people hitting 'Yes' is definitely more than 3!

Presumably though if you've shown photos of the tank then you can't enter it? How much does it cost to enter? I'm tempted, if only for a laugh as I know it's not up to much. I'd be more tempted with the AGA as they don't have any particular 'style'.

I definitely think planter should enter "Coast".

The cost of entry is free unless you include the thousands we spend on our tanks anyway to try and reach ADA guru status :?

Saintly that makes me 2 months 'wiser' than you . lol

Bought my first ever aquarium in November 2006 and started with plants in January 2007.

Worth a go especially if it is free. I'm off to buy some childproof padlocks.
