Third Place

Very nicely done discus tank! I appluad your choice of wild-type discus. You have done a great job of displaying them at their best.


Great contrast of textures. I like the multi-textured foreground. Nice blend of thin vertical background and dense foreground.


I really like the simplicity of this design and how all the plants seem to fit into the aquascape naturally! The driftwood is a fantastic piece with the nice branching and the discus and Apistogramma are a perfect fit for this tank. Very nice!
