voted for 9, because the look is amazing. I almost voted for something else because I can't see any fish in 9, but nothing caught my eye quite as much.

I do look at all those points too. But agreeing with Fat Homer, if say, that tank had an Aro or some other fish that did not match the tank, people would vote on it simply cause it has an Aro in it or their favorite fish, or because it was a friends tank. I have seen people going around and posting in people's profile/visitor comment area asking for votes. I think they should be disqualified for this.
I agree an aro would be way out of place, but maybe some more schooling fish, angels or discus, or a pair of small other type of SA cichlid would make 12 pop. It is a really nice planted tank, the only thing that bugs me is the one stem of ludwigia on the left.

What Fat Homer is trying to say is people will vote on a tank all cause it has Aros, bichers, pbass, rays, dats, and/or piranhas regardless if the tank itself is lousy. I've seen many TOTM and POTM won just cause of this bias. There is little cliques on here and people generally vote for their friends and favorite fish.
Thanks you for clearing that up for me :) and yes, that was the point i was trying to get across...

Also, would certain fish ruin an aquascaped tank for me? Honestly, not really? Unless they absolutely did not belong in a particular setting...

For example, if you had a very nice and delicately aquascaped / planted tank by say Takashi Ammano and it had a lung fish in it, then i might think it was a bit unusual since it wouldnt make sense to me...

But some type of chiclids in a hard scaped tank i could appreciate...

Yes if anyone is posting up their tank number soliciting votes its an automatic disqualification so please report it.

If you enter this contest please remember this is an ANONYMOUS contest. If you are going to solicit for votes I will pull your entry.
