Awards and Judge Comments

This looks like a healthy, well established tank. The look might be improved by cutting down on the floating plant mass at the top of the tank.

Additional Information
I prefer, and am trying to achieve a "wild and natural" look. I look for my aquariums to grow into themselves and with time become wild. Aquariums being dynamic in nature, this one is continually changing. This is what makes this hobby enjoyable. I try and let the way the plants naturally adapt to the aquarium environment dictate the final aquascape. This particular look is optimized at the moment but will soon begin to change, and I will will have to make some changes. No regular fertilization is used. When the tank was first established I occasionally add Flourish, but not for over a year now.
