Looking for and Survey

Looking for Dwarf Four-Leaf Clover (Marsilea crenata) and any other 
foreground plant that you might have. I'm still looking for some good 
foreground plants before the AGA Aquascaping contest.

That leads me to the survey. Just out of curiosity, how many here are 
seriously thinking of entering the contest? If so, what aquarium size are you 
going to enter and what category? I'll start off.

Yes. Medium (26 gallon). Aquatic garden.

C'mon newbies, I know you're tempted to enter. I'm a newbie (started last 
August with my first planted tank) and I figure I have NOTHING to lose in 
this contest. After all, if I don't place in the contest, then it just 
confirms what I already know- I'm a newbie! If I DO place imagine how much of 
an ego booster that is. It's a win-win situation. =D   Imagine your bragging 
rights too-

"I had the GUTS and the BALLS to enter the contest. How about you??"

Hmmmm... Out of curiosity Mr. Purchase would people be able to enter their 
algae farms in this contest? Can you imagine the possibilities?? Imagine the 
beautiful scene-

"Rolling mounds of hair algae gentling swaying in the current. Here and there 
are scattered handfuls of red staghorn algae. Every once in a while you see 
the cute head of a contented and full Amano shrimp popping out of the mounds, 
like a cute bunny. Off in the shadows a blanket of blue-green algae provides 
a nice intermediate color before it fades into the blackness of the shadows. 
To the left stands a grand bush of beard algae. Contented and happy fish swim 
about and through this peaceful scene."

Some of us spend an insane amount of money trying to battle this peaceful 
scene. I don't see why this scene wouldn't be a valid entry. After all the 
category is aquatic garden and algae is a simple plant right? =D... 
hehehehhehehehehehehhe... If this is valid, heck, I'm digging out my old 2.5 
gallon with 8 watts of light and dump a bunch of miracle-grow in it and watch 
the suckers blossom. Anyone care to join me? Some of us wouldn't have to do 
too much after all to accomplish the scene I described. < G >
