August 2014 Freshwater POTM Contest!

August 2014 Freshwater Picture of the Month Contest
-Hosted by Autumnsky

CONTEST THEME "Something Special"

Hello everyone! This month's theme is "Something Special"! Post a picture depicting something special, whether it is the photo angle, the subject mater, favorite plant, fish or invert, what your FW friend is doing, etc...pretty wide open, but please share a sentence or two of what makes this pic special! Titles are appreciated.

Please post your photo for the August 2014 Freshwater POTM contest.

Photos must be uploaded to your photo album and the bbcode link posted in the thread. A brief description of your photo may be included. Albums are found in your profile in the right hand column. If you need assistance uploading to an album, please PM an Aquarium Advice site team member (mod/admin), and they can walk you through it. Once uploaded, you can link directly in the contest thread here using IMG tags.

One photo per member per month allowed, and the photo MUST be taken by you.

I will select the winner of the contest based on the quality of the photograph and how closely it relates to the theme this month . The winner will copy and paste this section to a new thread, where they will decide the theme of next months contest (please only submit thread once, it has to be approved by a staff member before it shows up). Submissions will be accepted until the last day of the month. The winner will be announced on the first day of the next month. The new contest thread should be created no later than the 3rd day of the new month. I will send a PM to the winner, letting them know that they have won, along with a post in this thread. I will also send a PM to an admin or moderator, so that they can add the POTM Badge to your account. Good luck!

Went through my camera roll looking for a pic that matches this theme but I came up short. So enjoy a pic of my cat in a fish tank. Xd http://i1172.photobucket.com/albums/...pscbhyzu34.jpg

This is about the closest I ever got to one of those special aquascaping contest winner type shots you see out there on the web. It is a far cry from the best out there, but I was still pleased with how the tank developed.

This is a picture of my 1st Dwarf Gourami with some of my first live plants in the background, therefore it's special to me in both those ways. Now that that wonderful fish is no longer with us, it's value increases to me; those fish are so pretty, i love having them in my tank!

Try contacting a moderator, I don't know why that would happen.
