Awards and Judge Comments

THis aquascape appears to contain a few scenes that are well composed, but overall it doesn't have an effective focal point.

Roger Miller

Well lit tank producing beautiful plant colors! I would probably take away some R.wallichii and plant more dark and green Crypts instead in order to create more depth.

Detlef Hupfeld

A beautiful tank. This one really grabs my attention. Lots of depth, lots of color, and some wonderful lines. The Windelov at the back/top is very interesting looking.
