    Welcome to the CORA March Photo Contest

    Topic: Neglected Tanks

    Imsalty was February's winner therefore he got to pick this months topic. The winner will receive a $25 gift card of their choice to any one of our amazing sponsors.


    Contest rules:

    1. Final Photos submitted before the 15th will be listed in a thread poll and voted on by anyone who wishes to vote(not just CORA members). If you'd like assistance working with your pictures, please start a new thread. The single picture post you put here is your final entry for the month.

    3. Photos must be taken by the CORA member and not a friend/spouse/etc.

    4. Each picture should include a description of what is in the picture(ie..what species, where it was taken, special notes).

    5. Members may not win for two consecutive months, if you win and post in the following month your photo will be excluded in the poll.

    6. Please try to make the photo around 800 x 600 so they are all similar in size.

    7. Photo post-processing to adjust color, white balance, etc. is welcome(photoshop) within reason. Please don't create a whole different scene in photoshop.

    8. Your photo must have a URL so your photo can be seen and posted if you win.

    Voting:

    Photos submitted before the 15th will be listed in a thread poll and voted on by anyone who wishes to vote(not just CORA members). Voting will close on or around the end of each month and a winner will be announced.

    How to add a photo

    First, you need to utilize a secondary account, like photobucket, flickr, etc.

    After uploading your photo to their site, there are boxes below or beside the image with some text that looks like this:

    Quote:
    [img]www.imgur.com/yourPic.jpg[/img]

    Copy and paste that into your message here on CORA



    Here is detailed instructions about imageshack specifically.

    Since some members have had some problems trying to upload photos, here is a step by step how.

    1) Create an account and upload your images to an image host site like Image Shack http://imageshack.us/ If you want to change the size (like 800x600) for the photo contest select the UPLOAD OPTION / RESIZING and pick what size you want.

    2) Open and view the image you want to post.

    3) Right click on the image and select PROPERTIES

    4) Go to the (Address URL) this is the http: highlight and copy the http link

    5) Now in your post at the top select Insert Image(Square with a Mountain) this will give you a prompt that will ask for the URL of you image

    6) Right click in the line that shows http: and paste the link you copied.

    7) Your image should then be displayed in the post.

    8) Another way is to just paste the link you copied directly in the post. Your image will not be displayed but a hyperlink to the URL will. Just click on the link and up pops your photo.

    I'll go first!

    This is a 150 (6x2x21ish) that I've had for 22 or 23 years. It was the home of Hannibal, my 4' Undulated Moray until he died at the ripe old age of 25. That was almost 2 years ago. It has since sat, growing kenya tree frags under now 5 year old 4 x 48" T12 VHO. What served as the refugium for it is now my frag tank. If I can find a place for it, I want to move it upstairs so my Wife can have her own Softie/Anemone tank.

    Anyways - off to the pictures:

    FTS taken yesterday


    And a look down the length:


    I haven't lifted the canopy in several months. There's no real need. Unless somebody wants some Hair Algae or Cyanobacteria? Free to a good home!!!
