Third Place

The formal aspects of this tank are delightfull. Replace the mossy driftwood with spotless petrified wood and I couldn't stop raving.

Jeff Kropp

A very nice aquascape. If there are any comments to make; addition of plant groups with medium height and some 'red' plants would improve the general impression.

Wim van Drongelen

This is a beautiful and serene aquascape, and clearly a painstakingly prepared and maintained entry. My personal preference is for a little more diversity of form and color, however. A small nit-pick...the tank would present a slightly more finished appearence if the water were filled up to the level of the frame, particularly when the aquarist has taken the trouble to so carefully manicure the edges of "lawn" and substrate.
