Awards and Judge Comments

A very nice design, it isn't easy to create a tank that looks nice from 4 sides.

Wim van Drongelen

Fish species less suited for this kind of display. (Java Moss = Vesicularia dubyana). Discus needs to blow in the sand, this is to course. Discus needs more space: horizontal plane. Bottom sand not that high against the windows looks nicer. From all sides you see the bare corners.

Pim Wilhelm

This is an impressive display in a very challenging type of tank. Well done!
