    So I think ill do the honors of doing the first RAOK (random act of kindness) on here this year that ive seen.

    This RAOK includes:

    Over 2 handfuls of Bacopa Monnieri

    Stems of Ludwigia Arcuata


    Some stems of Ammania sp. Bonsai

    Some Stems of Ludwigia Rubin

    about 10 golfball size portions (or more) of Hydro japan

    and a golfball size portion of Thick pearlweed


    And some more things ill keep Secret for the winner!

    All listed are emersed grown

    But I don't want this to be a simple RAOK or else that's just boring...

    For the ones who are entering this little "contest" please comment with a FTS of your tank in the comments, I will choose several judges/members on the forum to pick out which tank "looks the best."
    Once the judges have chosen the tank that they think is the best of them all, they will notify me and the tank that has the most votes from the judges will win the RAOK and I will send them a private message notifying them of this, and of course ill announce it.
    Steps to enter (simply...)
    1. Take a Full Tank Shot (FTS)
    2. Post the FTS in the comments
    3. Wait, and see if you win ;)
    One thing I do ask though is the shipping to be paid which is a small 10$ ( since the package will be fairly large)

    Here are some tips of making your tank look "the best" in presentation.
    • If you have schooling fish, sometimes its nice to get them in the photo.
    • Make sure your plants are the height you want them, and are in good shape!
    • Try not to get your finger in the picture! :)
    • Lighting is also another key factor when taking a photo of your tank, make sure you take more than 1 photo and pick out which one you like the best (it works trust me).
    The contest will end once 7 or more entries have been made, to make it fair rather than having one person enter, now that wouldn't be to exciting?!
    All are welcome to enter, all tank types, aquascapes, you name it!
    Just make sure you have fun!

    Thanks for Reading And Entering!

    "We don't take too kindly to RAOKS"

    hehe jk
    I never understood why no one entered my raoks here. Possibly hardcore, not enough members (can't be), or the system is intertwined of executive powers in which we as a people will never defeat as we ourselves will turn against one another.....

    I think it was the third reason, but i'm not sure

    here u go buddy, thanks for doing this:
