Awards and Judge Comments

Honorable Mention

This is a very nice aquascape -- one of several similar aquascapes that were very difficult to judge.

Roger Miller

Flow from left to right slightly too firm, otherwise scape very well done. Carefully plant some more C. balansae to the background and/or few more E.tenellus just in front of Java moss.
