Awards and Judge Comments

Beautiful, lush tank, but slightly past its prime. It's a big decision to do away with the huge bed of chain swords, but it might be time for them to go.


I found the high foreground plants to be overpowering.


Nice healthy looking plants and fish. The angelfish look at home in this tank. A bit of pruning at the front of the tank and moving the larger swords toward the back corner would improve the aquascape a little. The triangular flow of the plants toward the front of the tank would be outstanding. The tiger lotus is beautiful and catches the eye!
