Awards and Judge Comments

Absolutely gorgeous... Even better than last year!


The blue backdrop was distracting from an overall nice arrangement.


Nicely designed layout with some healthy plants. The two splashes of red really draw attention to this tank as does the placement of the stones. Nicely done. The java moss would have been better on flatter stones that give a slower transition from the foreground up. Nice tank!
