Awards and Judge Comments

Pretty tank. While I like sloping compositions, this one ends up feeling like things were "piled" in the corner. Also, the lily was not at the peak of performance when this photo was taken.


Very good plant selection and overall arrangement, epecially the driftwood. Very pleasing to look at.


A nice healthy looking tank with an interesting aquascape. The leaves of the Nymphaea lotus coming from around the driftwood makes this aquascape unique. nicely done. I'd stick with one type of foreground instead of mixing so many different types and also emphasize one plant in front of the driftwood on the right side. Nice tank.
