Awards and Judge Comments

First Place

This is a beautiful aquarium, with great color and interesting, varied texture.

Roger Miller

Neon don't fit well to the striking colors of plants! Add some darker parts to the tank in order to improve quietness and peace to the eye. Take some plants out in the middle as to create more depth.

Detlef Hupfeld

Excellent definition between plants, great constrasts of colors, shapes, and textures. The colors seem to flow like plant down a hillside.
