Awards and Judge Comments

A healthy environment. It isn't easy to create an environment with a balance between planted and empty space. I would simplify the line of the substrate.

Wim van Drongelen

This is another tank that would benefit from larger groupings of fewer species of plants for a stronger design. The growth of some of the stem plants looks weak, and there is quite a bit of algae on the gravel. The betta does not look to be in peak health. He looks a little thin, and ragged. Still, it is a pleasant little community tank.
