Awards and Judge Comments

Honorable Mention

Everything I said about entry 102 is almost equally valid for this aquarium. Deciding between these aquascapes is difficult, but the decisive factor for the smaller assesment for this tank is the missing of colourful (red) plants.

Kaspar Horst

This is an attractive tank, but it would benefit from some horizontal lines to balance the strongly vertical lines of the growth. The red of the Cryptocoryne and 'Rubin' sword is a nice touch but would be better used if separated and and off center a little more.
