Awards and Judge Comments

Honorable Mention

I love the rocky background on this tank! I think this tank probably is a few weeks short of "peak"... The foreground plants have not quite covered the substrate yet in many places. I also would prefer not quite such a mixture of plants in the foreground. The exhibitor has made a good attempt at the bright sweeping splash of color I like to see, but I would have preferred that the tank was not quite so markedly "split down the middle" in terms of plant arrangement.
