Awards and Judge Comments

Vibrant, healthy tank. No doubt the fish love swimming in and among the lacy, frilly stemplants. From a human viewpoint there are too many species of small leaved stemplant in the small middle portion of the tank. Decreasing the number of species and adding some different species with more contrasting foliage would bring focus to the aquascape. That Hygrophila would be a good option for one contrasting species. The forward position it's in now necessitates too frequent pruning, giving it a flat-topped feel. Putting it in an area farther back will allow it to grow taller and use its quick growing nature to best effect.

Middle ground and background is not good. Nymphaea should not be placed here.

Takashi Amano

Nice healthy tank, and I'm sure enjoyable. But it lacks a clear aquascaping focus.
