Awards and Judge Comments

Such a nice altum photo!

Jeff Kropp

Beautiful angels, and a nice impression of what could be similar to their natural habitat. They need a higher tank as they grow.

Wim van Drongelen

The understated planting is the perfect backdrop for a stunning collection of Altums. It is too bad that the slight murkiness of the water detracts from the overall impression of the tank. As I've stated elsewhere, honesty is great, but I would not include a photo of a thin-ish fish with his fins clamped. He might look brighter and happier most of the time, but this photo doesn't do him justice, or add positively to the impression of the entry.
