Honorable Mention

This is a very well-composed and expressive aquascape. I really enjoy studying it. The aquarist may need to rein in the moss before it gets any further ahead of the anubias.

Roger Miller

Very well balanced low maintenance scape with lots of harmony! Minor drawback on left side due to very similar parts of driftwood. What's gone wrong with the colors? (Digital white balance? If chemical film try better flourescents)
