Awards and Judge Comments

Healthy growth, but a hodgepodge of plants, without much definition. I don't like highly altered fish in general, and I had to take points off for viabilty in this case... If blue Dempseys are like their normal counterparts, they are likely to pummel the Bolivian rams when they get a bit bigger, after which they will start digging up the tank in an effort to build a spawning pit.


Very interesting selection and arrangement. It would be fun to be a miniature scuba diver and explore all the spaces.


You have a tank of both beautiful and unusual plants and fish. The plants and fish both look healthy and have vibrant colors. This tank still looks like it hasn't matured completely. Some pruning and replanting to propagate some of the species will help fill this tank out. Also moving the plants back and opening up the foreground will improve the look of the tank dramatically. Very nice.
