Third Place

A beautiful lay-out for such a small aquarium. The over all impression would have been better if the plants were trimmed 2 weeks before the photo was taken.


This is an eye catching tank, and the aquarist has done a nice job making it attractive from all sides. Unfortunately, the species used, particularly the emphasis on fast-growing stem plants, make is a maintenance nightmare.


Very interesting arrangement. The driftwood really helps the visual flow. Being viewable from all sides is a nice feature.


Another nice healthy tank with vibrant growing plants. Narrow down the number of plants you're working with by half or more. The tank seems a little too jumbled and center the tank around one group of plants with the other plants complementing it. Nice tank though.
