We’ve got some fun new contests on FishChannel and ReptileChannel that need participants with great imagination and a knack for creating witty sayings.
Each month a new photo will be posted and it is up to you to write a witty caption and send it in. Visitors are also invited to send in their photos of fish, tank setups and reptiles to be used as the monthly photo.
Fish eClub and Club Reptile members could earn 500 points toward their account if their caption is selected as the most witty and creative.
