Awards and Judge Comments

Another aquarium with a great deal of potential. It looks as though the aquarist trimmed the plants too harshly too close to the photographing date. The choice of stemplants in the left side is right on, let them grow out and trim them so that they branch and fill in the background to match the strong fore and mid grounds.

Phil Edwards

Fore and middle ground layout was excellent. The background should have been filled with more stemmed plants.

Takashi Amano

You've done the hard work of designing an attractive, stable mid-ground for your tank, but now it is time to work on your stem plants in the back. There is too much white space in the back where your stem plants are just starting to reach up. They need time and trimming to fill in. That will also give you the oportunity to hide your equipment if you can't pull it out for photos.
