Voting for 2017 Picture Of The Year

Happy New Year! Once again it’s time for the members to choose the POTY (Picture of the Year), which is the overall best picture from all the 2017 POTM winners.

This could be a tough one. There were some great pictures this year! You will notice some months have multiple photos – those months had multiple POTMs (regular, themed and/or betta). We also had a couple of months where there was a tie for first place.
The rules for voting are simple:

1. You can only vote once and for only one picture.
2. The goal is to choose the best photo – not your favorite fish or person.
3. Please refrain from voting for your own picture.
4. Members with a negative rating are not eligible to vote.
5. Guests are not allowed to vote.
6. Members with less than 25 posts are not allowed to vote.
7. Voting will run through the end of January 2018.

Good luck to all!

I don`t think the quality of the photos has ever been so good as the ones submitted in 2017, well done to all the winners over the year.

For me, #5 The LionFish, stunning photo. 👍

Number #4, the soft blur and reflection still stun me. There's so many amazing pictures here, and I remember voting on a few of them in the past. I wish I could vote for them all!
