Between two? I guess I'm mistaken from being in the UK or something
The winner will be decided around October 1st based on voting here from my understanding. Pick the one you think is winning. You can change your vote Throughout the contest. A winner hasn't yet been chosen - unless you were saying you voted for your winner in which case I misunderstood and am sorry!

Raffle winners. If you participate in this giveaway, they do a random drawing, and two winners will receive a tank/corals. The game is to vote on which of the two display picos is the best.

@WWC Lou any updated photos?
Hey everyone Lou here.........I wanted to thank everyone for their support & votes, it has been a really fun contest so far. Please keep on voting and may the best tank win!!

Honestly the reason I have not posted any updated pics is because my tank has had a few struggles over the past 2 weeks. When I got back from Reef-A-Palooza California I had a small outbreak of aiptasia & also found some weird filament algae was growing in the tank. So I added a few blue leg hermit crabs, more margarita snails then did a big manual tank clean up prior to last weekend. I also shut off the lights for the 2 days to help control the algae. In addition I added a peppermint shrimp (luckily it took care of all of the aiptasia) Everything looks like its back on track & hope to post new pics by the end of next week. Thanks again everyone for their patience and support!!!!

wow these are beautiful already! im excited to see how these look after another month! i love nano reefs so once i saw this i had to get in on the action! ive been doing this for 14 years now and still to this day love smaller setups most ppl go the opposite route and go really after so many years go by. i create the same amount of work for myself that a large tank would by having a fricking nano reef tank in every room in my house lol! i do have a redsea xl200 and a 40breeder with 20 long sump as well but id say thats still more towards the nano side of the hobby . id be super grateful to win a setup from highly respected reef keepers like these gentlemen!

I’ve been talking about my own tank to my class and they want me to set one up at school. This would be the perfect tank for that.

Official Entry: This is definitely a "want to win.... but I don't want to win.... but I really want to win situation"! LOL. Been thinking about a pico tank for a while now but just haven't taken the leap. This would help.
