AVAST PLANK Top Lids Giveaway contest 4.jpg

Avast Marine and Top Lids are teaming up to bring you an awesome and fun giveaway with a bit of a different spin!! Welcome to the "Tank Talk with Top Lids & Avast Marine Giveaway!!" Both Avast Marine and Top Lids have established themselves with a reputation for quality and innovation that leads to epic excellence! We're proud to have both of these great companies as sponsors of our community, and super excited about seeing them come together for this event!

Now, I said this giveaway has a bit of a different spin to it, and here's what I mean... One of the things we love about having a community like Reef2Reef is that we can come together over our passion for all things marine and celebrate the wonderful parts of the reef hobby, we enjoy showing off tanks, talking through complications, finding solutions, and celebrating progress toward those thriving beautiful reef aquariums, and we do all of that together in community! Well, in this event, you guys are going to get to talk through all of these different aspects of the hobby with the guys behind these 2 awesome brands.

Each day, you will be given a discussion prompt (or sometimes maybe more than one), and your response to that prompt is your entry to the giveaway! It really is that simple! Engaging in conversation about reefing topics with @Avast Justin and @Top_Lids is how you participate and WIN in this contest!!

The grand prize for this giveaway is a Plank Autofeeder and a large bag of Reef Jerky (feeds an average size tank for 5-6 months) from Avast Marine and a custom Luxury Lid from Top Lids w/ Food Regulator!

Also, in addition to that grand prize, the great folks at Avast Marine and Top Lids have said that they will be monitoring the giveaway with the plan to award bonus prizes to people they see who are completely engaged with the contest and the ongoing conversations in here! So keep your participation up, and you could win cool bonus prizes!

Official entry, I would love a better lid on my tank, currently using glass lids and they're a pain for maintenance. Plus they won't fit that auto feeder. And love, LOVE the feeder, would love to try it.

Official post: I don't have a tank yet but I just ordered one from a custom builder. One of my next steps would be to decide where to get order a custom lid. If I won, then I won't need to decide and use Top Lids. The Avast feeder I considered in case I had to travel and would be great to have.

Official Entry: my tank is a 125 mixed reef. I already run two autofeeders and have an egg crate lid. I'd use this to upgrade!

Official entry!
I am currently building and waiting for the delivery of my new SCA150. The plan for the tank is mainly wrasse. I love how personable they are. Researched the plank and its 100% what i want for the wrasse. Now that obviously gives way to the reason for the lid!!! I have a splash daily from my current tank of wrasse.

Halichoeres Leucoxanthus. If you look close, I think the Halichoeres Garnoti and maybe the Halichoeres Melanurus are somewhere in there.
