I haven't recieved any results yet, but then again I haven't had much luck with correspondance of any kind from ADA. Where can I find the results? I've checked their home site and it's not up yet.

Best,
Phil

I haven't received my set of results, either. By this time last year, the ADA had a list of rankings on their site but not so this year.

Frustrating...

Can't wait to see the top 27 tanks for this year.

217th place here.
Gomer, Your tank is great. I'm really surprised it didn't make to hit the top 100. The competition had to be very tough.

I think the judges only take serious on the top 100 ~150 tank. I also feel sorry for some of my friend's beautiful tank cannot get a higher rank.
Gomer's tank is great and surely be within 100 in normal.

ADA's ranking always have jokes. Last year 2003, same tank by the same person submitted twice and get two different ranking, it's it rediculous :lol:

My tank "Aquarium Passion" luckily got 57

Well, that might be the same tank, but it sure is in different condition.
I also think the first pic is better than the second.
However, interestingly enough that same tank wouldn't even get to top 200 in this year's competition. That's a great improvement in aquascaping worldwide.

Cheers,
Pedro

ADA

Congratulations to all who had the courage to enter. It is not an easy thing to do, to put something you've created "out there" and let someone critque you.

There should be at least one aquascaping contest somewhere in the world where the people, the hobbyists, you and I decide who rocks and who doesn't. The AGA people's choice gets there but that is only awarded to one layout. To me that would be have a more accurate pulse of what appeals on a much larger scale. There also should be more feedback for entrants in any type of competition. A take on what they are doing that is impressive and what they need to work on. Or a guess we all could hire aquascaping coaches.

BTW, I came in at 126 and think they just switched my numbers another with a computer. Last year I was 162.

One day I will catch Luis. :D

It would be nice if, along with the ranking, you guys/gals could perhaps edit your posts to include the submitted tank image as well. My eyes have a sweet tooth. :biggrin:

Thanks.
