Awards and Judge Comments

Honorable Mention

Vibrant, but lacking in definition. I don't care for the white substrate. It particularly clashes with the nice rock work. I love the shot up from the bottom with the harlequins "flying" above. Very creative!


Nice overall composition but the vertical plants kept moving my eyes away from more interesting areas.


Outstanding tank! I really love the use of the rocks and Marsilea in combination. Very nice effect. I wish I could see a little more of the Barclaya on the right side. Very nice tank!
