Default 2009 Vivarium Voting

Congratulations to boogsawaste (jim) for winning the Vivarium contest. He wins a one year TWI Membership.

Here is his description of the tank:
Quote:
It's a 44 gallon pentagon (corner) tank. It's kind of hard to get good looking pictures of it because of the 3 separate panes in the front (a bow would be worlds better). It was finished initially in September of 08 but I just redid the bottom portion of it by moving some things around and removing some other things. But most of the plants were in there since the beginning and especially the ones growing epiphytically.



Please vote for your favorite Vivarium.

The winner will receive a one year TWI Membership.
If you are already a TWI member a donation will be made on your behalf for the price of the membership.

I voted for #2 because I find it very visually appealing , but I think #11 probably duplicates their natural environment the best.

I voted for #16 because I don't see nearly as many terrestrial tanks as I would like to that have that much depth. The visual flow seems really well thought out and the rock make for a unique backdrop in comparison to many of the vivarium themes I've seen. I guess I just like it!

I voted for #18, for its well-managed diversity of plants (not an easy achievement over the long run). Leaf-litter would probably be a better substrate for the Azureus, but as a planted terrarium, it is beautiful.

I love both 15 and 18. I like how 15 shows how just using a few types of plants repeatedly can look very natural; and 18 for the great plant diversity and insane moss growth.

Looking at all these great viv pics makes me wish I spent more time taking a better picture......The clarity in some of these pics is amazing, I can never seem to get the lighting right, and the balance of shadows, etc.

I voted for 19. It is not the best photo of this viv, but the other pictures of it do a much better job of showing it off. Number 9 was a close second.

I vote for #2. I like the way its setup.I will hopefully setup one similar to that type of landscape. I would have to agree with others when they all look great.

looks like this year the conpetition has gotten a little tougher to judge, some great ones, i still think we shoudl allow several pics of each from different angles to apprecitate the beauty of each one is hard to get that from just one pic

But they are all so good, it is difficult to choose.

I must say I think #15 is my favorite, but they are all so good. Those red broms in #6 are awesome and I really like how #10 looks like you would need a machete to walk through it

All the entries are wonderful. I voted for #10. I think it is great to see a nice tank with height that allows the light to reach all levels of the tank. Nicely done.

I would wager #5 is a new tank - and given a few months to grow in will be spectacular. I love the the construction design of this tank.

They were all beautiful.

Wow! This is humbling.
I think the "best photo submission" award should go to #18, absolutely.
I also think #8 is the kind of place I'd want to live if I were a frog.
