Awards and Judge Comments

This is a pretty tank, but I like aquariums with fish. A nice school of even one small species would add so much life to this display! The aquarist has done an admirable job of designing an aquascape that can be maintained relatively easily. It's a shame that the hairgrass hasn't filled in as nicely in the left corner as it has in the middle front at the time this photo was taken.


Nice start of a tank. This tank looks like it still needs to mature a little, but it's healthy and has a great deal of potential. Some type of plant behind the Cryptocoryne might be something you want to add eventually. Nice tank.
