Second Place

This is a very lush aquascape. It might be improved a little by getting more definition in the background. This is a rather small tank for discus or angels.

Roger Miller

I feel depth and balance in your scape. But Echinodorus should not grow any bigger. Please decide whether you want discus or angels, tank would benefit from smaller fish (more rainbows) in general.

Detlef Hupfeld

Very attractive tank, the plants flow nicely from the dense background right down to the lawn in the foreground. I'd like to see a little more splash of color.
