Awards and Judge Comments

Nice tank with good growth. I wish we could see the whole thing. It's too bad that you let equipment detract from the over-all impression. Next year remember that it perfectly OK to remove equipment before you do your photographs for a contest like this!


Nice healthy tank with good aquascaping. The Nymphae is beautiful and vibrant. For the groupings of plants, adding a slope would give the tank more depth and bringing the red plant in the back down across the front will give the tank more impact. Nice tank!
