December 2015 Freshwater POTM

The Rules

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. Submissions will be accepted until the last day of the month. The winner will be announced on the first day next month and will be issued a badge. Anyone holding a badge can post a pic but will be exempt at the final decision.
This page is for posting your pictures only, not chit chat. Failing to follow the rules is means for disqualification.

============================================
The theme for December is going to be:

"Colour Contrast"

Coming away from the aquarium society meeting on shrimp keeping I was struck by how two colours next to each other can sum up to a stunning picture. So I'm keen to see photo's which show something of two different colours which are in sharp contrast. Anything can apply, it could be a plant, fish, aquarium, ornament or other tank pet. So for example it could be the black markings on a pale-bodied loach.

A description on why you selected the photo is also welcome.

I feel a bit silly even posting anything after Poppa's entry. Those are some beautiful fish! And going to be hard to beat as far as "Colour Contrast".


But, since I've already got my little badge and my entry doesn't count anyway.... here's a shot of what has become my favorite of my tanks. It's the RCS tank that sits here beside my desk. There are many ways you could look at contrast here. Be it the beautiful red plant(That I believe I got from Poppa!), or the couple of visible Assassin snails, or the dark shadows of the rock cave popping against the vibrant green plant-life.


Take your pick!!

Hi all, some great entries so far.

Remember any entry can win with many a time an iPhone photo loaded from an album carrying the day and you have to be in it to win it
