Second Place

Well done! This is a perfect example of how large groups of relatively few species of plants can make a dynamic aquascape. The aquarist has done a good job of using contrasts in foliage and color to create in interesting aquascape. My only problems are the somewhat spotty glosso patch and the similarity of the Rotala and Didplis in the left rear corner.

Phil Edwards

Very eye-catching tank, carefully manicured and photographed at its peak. Nice job.

Karen Randall

Triangular composition layout. Stemmed plants in the foreground are not good for long term maintenance
