Awards and Judge Comments

Impressive plant growth, good balance and play of colours


Wonderful!!! The different plant species have been used in a way to make this tank quite easy to maintain, with slower growing species serving as the "bones" while the stem plants that must be trimmed more frequently provide a bright splash of color.


The blue backdrop detracted from the overall composition.


A very nicely aquascaped tank. The two sections of the tank complement each other and the different leaf textures make this an interesting tank to observe. Allowing the Ludwigia to grow in fuller is my only minor suggestion. Very nice tank!
