Third Place

What frothy energy! Nice dark contrast, though somewhat out of balance

Jeff Kropp

Beautiful: the various plants are nicely grouped. Although it may be a photographic effect only, the light and dark contrast in this picture creates a special effect. Clearly there is no lack of oxygen.

Wim van Drongelen

This tank Shows vibrant good growth, and suffers from another small tank problem... It could use some trimming to show better differentiation between the plant groups. Here they tend to run all together. Another slight nit-pick is the light that spills along the top endge of the backing. This is distracting, and could be easily remedied by raising the backing a hair. Still, it is a very attractive tank.
