 Looks  like  a  fiasco  overall.  Sorry  to  see  such  senoir  hobbyists  getting  the  short  end  of  the  stick.  Guess  we  have  to  do  our  own  IAH  non  corporate  non  sponsored  events  to  allievate  such  issues.

 i  don't  actually  want  to  add  anymore  fuel,  but  i  found  it  a  bit  ironic  that  at  the  event  the  participants  were  given  some  ancient  ADA  books  that  too  in  Japanese,  what  on  earth  is  the  point  of  that?
 
 seems  to  me  that  this  event  was  a  marketing  stunt  of  some  sort  and  to  dispose  all  of  their  old  stock?  (am  i  wrong?)

 From  what  i  have  seen  or  have  read  most  of  the  price  ''top  rankings''  are  always  favouring  the  tanks  who  has  maximum  number  of  ada  products  used.....  
 
 I  can  understand  this  is  a  bious  results....
 
 Why  not  mailing  this  issue  directly  to  ADA  owner  mr  amano  himself  and  request  him  to  see  to  this  issue  or  else  take  a  oath  my  friends  we  will  stop  using  ADA  products....
 
 There  are  equally  good  and  better  products  available  out  there  and  that  too  at  competitive  rate....  So  why  not  ??

 @jaival-  that's  a  bit  too  extreme!  some  of  their  products  are  actually  very  good,  like  the  amazonia  substrate  and  few  other  products,  i  think  we  first  need  to  hear  about  this  from  Adip  himself.

 Strange!!!
 
 Hope  some  rectification  will  be  done.  Its  big  image  destruction.  
 
 Prajjwalda's  case  may  be  like  he  is  the  best  of  North  India  but  ranked  44th,  means  other  North  Indian  tanks  ranked  after  44.

 Adip  called  me  and  try  to  give  me  a  story.  
 
 He  is  saying  Amano  gives  same  number  to  me,  Sukanta  &  Abhirup.  And  that's  why  we  are  top  22  rather  than  top  20.  I  immediately  reply  him  it's  absurd.  How  can  it  be!!  You  always  telling  about   top  20  and  suddenly  it  becomes  top  22  !!  I  am  also  watching  the  list  of  IAPLC  last  4  years.  Every  individual  got  their  own  rank.  In  27th  July’13  you  also  said  that  it’s  top  20  and  discussed  with  top  20  scape  with  one  of  the  judge  from  Singapore,  and  among  of  them  mine  is  also  there.  Then  how  other  2  scape  came!!  
 
 He  doesn’t  have  any  positive  answer.  Lastly  he  said  that  he  is  looking  after  the  matter.
 
 Very  surprising  that  no  comments  from  the  people  who  are  the  winner  of  this  year.                          
 
 Can’t  we  be  the  honest  with  ourselves!!

 I  agree  with  parthapratim,  It  just  may  be  the  case  that  top  ranking  in  north  may  be  The  44th  so  can't  comment  on  that..  but  a  single  person  being  ranked  twice,  multiple  people  being  ranked  same,  giving  away  useless  prizes..Doh  
 Are  they  doing  this  contest  just  for  namesake  or  is  it  a  prank  just  to  promote  their  brand..  Confused

 Dada  I  would  feel  the  same.  
 
 But  same  time  I  always  determine  about  certain  things:  
 
 1)  We  dont  have  a  bigger  contest  to  our  level.  
 2)  We  dont  have  our  own  brand  of  product  for  aquascaping.
 3)  When  it  is  national  contest  I  would  target  top  10,  its  meaningless  top  20,30.  Its  very  much  my  feeling.  If  it  is  International  I  target  top  300-400.  Year  passes  I  would  target  more  closer  to  the  top.
 4)  Every  contest  has  few  flaws,  because  of  those  we  reject  them.  Like  they  dont  give  ranking,  they  dont  have  judge  comments,  they  only  promote  their  products,  they  have  public  voting   etc  etc.  But  we  only  can  make  such  contest  more  success,  going  above  for  such  issues.  
 
 In  this  context,  for  betterment  of  Indian  Aquascaping  we  should  encourage  participation.  But  yes  I  support  this  discussion  when  things  gone  wrong.  Sure  we  will  protest  any  contest  rule,  but  will  participate  next  year.  So  things  changes  for  betterment.  
 
 Hope  you  have  not  taken  decision  not  to  participate  next  year.  Crying or Very sad  
 
 I  dont  want  181  contest  and  181  participants  Chuckle
