Congrats Dragonsnake!
It seems the large males rule in this comp.
I really liked pic 4 - quite different and great lighting - minimalist but eyecatching, and pic 5 looks very natural - I like the way they are swimming together like they are in the wild, but congrats to 7 - a nice looking fish.

Yeah Congrats Dragonsnake! Great photo of a great looking Gib! Although that Moba Moba wild caught tank bred natural in the lake miditonka in natural artificial lighting would have been my second pick... LOL

If you look at picture #7 from your May Photocontest you can see that theres no doubt that it matches this picture at this link and this picture was posted on this site back in 10-03-2005 05:19 PM The true owner of the picture is the owner of

And heres the link the gallery upload that shows the date uploaded 10-03-2005 .You'll have login in order to view the picture in the gallery

I'm hoping that the site admins and or moderators understand and take action on this as its something I'm anyone here would be upset if there pictures were being posted for photocontests and represented as someone elses

ADMIN NOTE: Thank you for pointing this out.

Photo 7 is disqualified, that makes 2 this month.

The member who is in question will also be banned for cheating.

Cheating the photo contest is punished by a ban for life from this website.

This is quite bizarre. I mean its not like this is a major competion with big cash prizes, its just for fun really with a token prize. Just imagine what would happen if a large cash prize were offered.

Well I received my towel so I'm sure there is a good reason or just an oversight as to why your friend has not had his.

This is different issue.. Your friend should ask for his towel if he won. I was trying to be funny putting my question..meaning was: what symbolic prize could someone make to be a cheater and get it for free instead of going to a towel store and buy it.

Well i musi say i haven't received my towel yet either.
Then again it's only a few months back and i know Allen is a very busy man.
I also figured that they are probably send out like 2 or 3 times a year.
I am not worried yet and believe i will recieve one.

Yeah november 2009 is a while back but i am sure there is an honest mistake or it just got lost in the mail.

Whats the sense of having contests if there's no prizes sent out to the winners ????

You know I kind of just cruise through the sites online never really paying much attention until I seen this thief "Dragonsnake" that stole a picture from the owner of the another fish site "Can't say the name as it's always moderated "sensored" by the admins or mods & owner" and my last post about the accusation of the thief " Dragonsnake" stealing the contest winner was edited/sensored ??? Seems kind of wierd not showing the whole post with the URL's that show the members here why this member here is a thief ???

Not sure if this member has been banned for life yet ??? But I was kind of hoping to actually see what kind of reply this guy was planning

If anyone is curious to see the actual picture that was stolen send me a PM I will show you the URL to the actual owner of the picture

Ohh there's still one more thumbnail of that stolen picture below the edited picture saying that Dragonsnake was disqualified for cheating .I'm sure that the owner would want it taken off your site

I consider this contest as interesting enriching of the frontosa keeping and not real fight for prize (towel). I think this is not about cheating or wrangling. I am sorry that such things happen here and hope that all other potential cheaters will turn off their "great" ideas and all winners get their towels.

You can consider anything that you want that the contest is enrichening or whatever, in my book when you promise something for someone you should follow through with it or your word isn't worth anything .If you can't supply the promise/prize then don't offer it bottom line
