Awards and Judge Comments

This is a well-composed aquascape with good color featuring crypts, which requires patience and deliberate planning. The glossostigma carpet needs a little more time to grow in and I wonder if the sword plant will remain as well-behaved as it is in these pictures. The presentation will work a lot better when the visible equipment is removed or hidden and the glass is cleaned.

Please hide inflow of filter behind Java fern! You might add Co2, more trace and Po4 for Glosso to get growing!
