Mega-dittos, Wright.

I don't think this would prove very much either, other than who can lug the
most stuff to a mall. Anyway, my "single size" tanks are 100 gallons. Kind
of awkward, what?

I would have to ask who is qualified to judge such a competition. Are there
any aquascaping experts in North America? Perhaps entry fees could be used
to fly some experienced Dutch judges in for the judging. 

Sorry, I think I am still uninterested.
