Diy contest here!!!!!!!!
good day every one.. we have noticed that there are a ton of great DIYers here and would like to give every one a chance to show off their skills. so starting on September 1, 2010 we would like to start a competition for DIY projects.
the winner will be showcased in the monthly Tropical Fish Keeping news letter.
the Rules are simple:

1) create a DIY thread with clear details on your project (pictures always help!!)

2) Create a reply to this thread that gives a brief description of your project and include a link to your thread.

3) after the entry period is over Vote for your favorite DIY project!!!

to be clear we would like members to have done the project them selves. while we know many of the DIY ideas come from the internet we do not want anything copy and pasted from another source, after all this is about your experience not some one else. Every project requires a special something to make it work and a plan on line does not generally go over some of the finer details.....

for this competition submissions will be excepted from September 1, 2010 until October 31.2010.
voting will begin on November 1, 2010 until November15, 2010
the winner will be announced no later than November 17, 2010
and showcased in the October news letter!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

between now and the start of the contest replies will be taken to hear your feed back on this competition the day before submissions are allowed all other replies and conversation will be removed from this thread by the Moderating team..... further conversations about the contest are here
