Re: What About a 2011 Competition #21
Coolboy, how about collecting together a list of workable competition options, turning them into a poll and we can vote which competition we would prefer?

Is that acceptable to the mods?

Re: What About a 2011 Competition #23
what about setting up a small live food tank where you set up a small tank and try to keep live food in it, would be interesting as I've tried a few times with daphnia and only once has it been a success

Re: What About a 2011 Competition #27
Two good ideas. Would the ?1 stock include those bought from local breeders? That's where I get my best buys.

There are a couple of issues with stock for a ?1, one you can abuse it, what's to stop someone selling you a pair of discuss for ?1.

And two, it might encourage people to keep fish/inverts/umm fish food they might not otherwise want which means what would they do after the comp.

Prehaps it's better to pick a suitible comp and then have a few sub comps like best looking/ best bang for buck... etc.
