Awards and Judge Comments

I like the big bowed piece of driftwood in this tank. But the planting is a little scattered, without a lot of "planning". The brown discus are gorgeous, but as I mention in another comment, I personally find the orange varieties of discua a little "jarring" to the eye. Still, this is a lovely tank!
