Awards and Judge Comments

This is an attractive aquascape featuring some very healthy-looking plants. The transition from riccia on the right to glossostigma on the left is a little discordant.

Roger Miller

The lotus won't stay small enough in the long run I suppose. Appealing plant arrangement!
