I like the vivarium build but it should have a start date for anyone wanting to participate and give a month or two for it to grow in. I think its a fair competition for everyone. The photograph competitions are hardly fair as it seems to always be someone with a $1000+ camera set up.

We should all start a build on the same date though cause a tank started a month ago will look better by the time the contest ends

how about best diy tutorial video? you could have a time limit of like 15 minutes and let folks show how to do various tasks relevent to the hobby. when its done the top __ videos could be posted to the care sheet area. not only would it be a great contest, but it could help others wanting to do some of these projects.

i'dd like to see a vid on the flevopol root, thing (like in grimm's tank), ive been planning a how to CPU fan video (as soon as i can get the camera battery charged). there are tons of opportunities. clay BGs, homemade FF recipes, tad incubators, GS, vert conversions, DIY lighting, glowing mushrooms , the list goes on and on.

I think a DIY video might be the most beneficial to the hobby. Its can be a bit of work, but I think the members would be up for it.

A $1000+ camera set up doesn't mean anything, I have one and my pictures still blow.

Surely you know someone that would lend you an ipod, or something similar, with video capabilities?

dido on the tutorial video. It would be cool to not only have the winner but several videos under on sticky somewhere that newbees and really anyone could access a bunch of DIY videos with out tedious searching.

It may have to be just one aspect of the tank bc it'd be pretty long to get the whole viv construction. I.E. foam background, clay back ground, false bottom, planting/ terrascaping, installing misting system, installing ventallation, DIY fly culturing, trimming a really old and over grown viv to make it look new and fresh again, administration of medicines, advance / multiple types of feeder DIY, sterilizing native moss/ sticks/ leaves.

What a great resource this would be.

Ok, lets see another sponser or two throw up some incentive!

In spite of the fact that I don't have a vid camera, nor have I ever toyed with video editing software, the DIY videos sound every appealing as a theme. New to all of this and enjoy learning everything I can. I have a 50 gal build coming up and it must rock!

I'm a day late and dollar short here, but I'll throw in my $0.02 anyway.

I like the DIY idea as it does add good content, but I think that you'd end up getting quite a bit of overlap in the content as a result. Personally, I like to see variety

One thing I was thinking on that would be a challenge and something new is Larvae. We just had a contest on spring amphibs getting it on, we ought to have a contest of the results of those efforts

i guess i could do a slide show picture like zbrinks did in his fake rock diy vid. i do have movie maker on my computer, although i don't have a lot of experience using it. People keep nagging me about that buttress tree tutorial anyways.... maybe it'll get me off my ass and actually do something lol.

awesome ideas.

OK, you think 90days from now would be good?

up to 3min vid

Dart frog related instructional video. (care & habitat)
ie. waterfall, medicating, fly cultures, false bottom, egg collection, tad rearing, other feeder cultures, lighting, total viv construction, plant edu, quarentine methods... hmmm...

New videos only

if we have enough vendors giving prizes than we could do prizes for stuff like most original, general best... that's all I can think of right now but that way we could get some variety.

3 minutes is too short IMO. many of these projects take some in-depth instruction, and 3 minutes just wouldnt cut it. i figured a 15 minute maximum, but why even put a limit on it?

if its well crafted, people interested in the topic could appreciate the extra time for more specifics.

DIY totorial video sounds great! i am unsure how you guys do the contests as i never participated in one. where do you submit the videos, on this thread? how much time will we have to complete these videos? would a complete DIY build be too much?
