First Place

Nicely terraced foliage gives good lights and dark in the photo. If the riccia was shorter and the foreground better defined I would score it better

Jeff Kropp

Beautiful!!The different empty spaces between the groups create depth, a true underwater world.

Wim van Drongelen

Well, with a tank like this beside my desk, I might not get a lot of work done! A really lovely entry that is teetering on the edge of needing a hair cut. Plants are vibrantly healthy, water is crystal clear, and fish look to be in tip-top health. As a side note, the tetras that appear in the photos are neon tetras, not cardinals.
