Awards and Judge Comments

I absolutely love the background of this tank, and overall, I like the aquascaping. Unfortunately, the "topiary" on the left end of the tank is quite jarring against the peaceful lines in the rest of the tank. I'm not fond of topiary in terrestrial plants, and no fonder of this aquatic version.

Interesting plant ball made of Hemianthus micranthemoides!
