Awards and Judge Comments

Pleasant composition. I don't really like the white sand, and I don't think the yellowish rocks sprinkled around improve the layout. The Anubias leaves show some yellowing in places. These leaves should be clipped before photographing the tank.


Very unique design.


What a wonderful layout for anubias and rockwork! The placement of the rocks and Anubias gives this tank a look of a hillside. Trade the light-yellow stones for something darker. It distracts the eyes.
