Just under 1 week left to submit your vivarium photo, for a chance to win $50! Don't wait the sooner you get it up the more time you have to accumulate 'likes'! Visit out facebook page for more info!

No point in uploading a photo if people cheat. The dude with the most votes (over 20) only has fake plants, an exo terra waterfall, and styrofoam background. Lame. People like Demonic. Kim, and myself who put hours and hours into our tanks, have like 2 votes each.

Yea, this contest is a complete fail with that. Since it's on facebook people don't know any better. I'm sure if I stuck 3 glow in the dark, light up waterfalls into a viv people would vote for it because it's so "colorful" haha... and don't even bother arguing with those people on the photo. It's not worth it.

I put my picture in, but my friends are not getting the fact that they have to "like" the page for Tropical Ecos. LOL.
I'm sure someone will have fun spending that $50

I'm with GRIMM it's just a popularity contest, Josh's had one a while back and thats what I felt about that one as well a real photo contest has knowledgeable judges that make choices based on aesthetic impact of viv degree of difficulty in making & maintaining and also photo quality.

Rules for the contest:
There are no rules as to how you get the 'likes' on your photo so get out there and get your friends or complete strangers to 'like' your photo.

Like was said by others, it's a Facebook popularity contest. It would be difficult to find unbiased, qualified judges to pick apart the builds and determine which was the "best" tank, by each person's own definition of "best."

Quote:

It's not cheating. The whole purpose and goal of the contest is to get the most "likes," however you have to do that. If someone posted a photo of a desert tank with no animals in it, and it got 50 "likes," there's nothing in the rules that say there's a problem with that. The rules don't say it has to be a tropical tank. The rules don't say it has to be live plants. If someone ran a TV commercial saying "get on this facebook page and vote for my photo" and 20 million people did, that's not cheating. The guy that wins will be the guy that recruits the most of his friends to "like" his photo. That's how these contests are always won.

God, the currently winning guys viv looks so trashy...

Ahhh well, I find it similar to how a child would go GaGa over a bright red and yellow race car bed... but wouldn't find himself dead in it when he grows up.

yes seeing that the person on the lead was a store bought tank made me want to enter.. quite frankly Grimm, Mike and Kimberly's tank are the ones i liked best..

oh well.. we are involved in a very exclusive hobby and we cannot expect to have good judges anywhere.

OK, I'm "challenged"...how do you vote? My personal facebook page has "comment" and "like" on the news feed page...I don't see that on the contest page.

By the way folks, take a valium, it's a for fun contest, the guy is giving free credit...you didn't pay to enter, it's not an olympic medal or something...it's supposed to be fun. I'm sure glad he didn't offer $1000...there would be blood in the streets.

The contest is serving its purpose, people are liking his page so they can vote. Its a good idea. I made one on my lunar gecko FB page. Gets me more traffic. I put up my 29 gallon vampire crab tank. Ony tank pic I had handy.

We have had a winner!

Their were multiple motives to the idea behind the competition; traffic was one of them but not the main reason. I think its a great way to get others interested in the hobby as well as see that there are many ways in which to create an enclosure and that they can all look completely different.

Towards the end of April we will be running another competition for another store credit. The next competition will be FROG Photo related.

Thanks for all the participation and we hope to see you all participate in the upcoming event as well!
