Second Place

Nice display with an oriental flavor. I like the branch, but the rocks chosen could have made a stronger statement. Here they almost look like the ring around a camp fire. An innovative choice of plants, though it doesn't look like a low maintenance tank!


Very striking. The wood and cyperus worked well to pull my eyes to all regions. The areas of bare substrate was a nice balance.


Awesome tank. I love the use of the branchy driftwood and rocks. The Ludwigia sp. Cuba makes an impressive group of plants in the tank. I wish I could see the Anubias a little more. Very well done!
