    Hi ranmasatome,

    The contest only runs for one month and will end of 1st May 2006. We did not announcement the contest on 1st Apr 2006 for obvious reasons. So it's 2nd April to 1 May 2006.

    For single species category, your picture must show only 1 plant species. Any aquarium plant species is fine. Basically, we are looking for a close up study of a single plant species.

    For plants in the aquariums category, you can show more than one type of plant. You can even show you whole tank if you like. Basically, we are looking for how plants can enhance your aquarium.

    Hope that clears your doubts.

    Cheers,
    I have dwarf cichlids in my tanks! Do you?

    Okay..just posting so all are clear.. let me know if my understanding is correct.

    single species category.

    1) ONLY 1 single species of plants in the photo. Single stalk or multiple stalks also can.. as long as its the same species.

    2) I can submit more than one picture EVEN THOUGH, its of a DIFFERENT species from the photos i submitted before. HOWEVER, ALL photos submitted must only show a SINGLE species.

    plants in the aquarium section

    1) ANY number of plants in the photo. In whatever order and however they come, as long as they are aquarium plants.
    2) Entire tank shots are allowed.
    3)more than one submission of a diferent nature is also allowed.

    yes??
