Awards and Judge Comments

Honorable Mention

Well designed and grown. Everything looks healthy and well tended. The similar shades of the H. polysperma and R. rotundifolia blend so well that the two groupings seem to be one. The generally even top of the foliage is distracting. Letting some of the plants grow to the top would have given the aquascape more visual interest.

Phil Edwards

A well executed layout that was captured at the right moment.

Ricky Cain

Very pretty tank! It has been captured at a better time is some shots than in others.

Karen Randall

The layout looks monotonous. I advise to make a difference in height of the background plants.
