Awards and Judge Comments

WOW! This aquarium must have been as big a challenge to aquascape as it is big! What I can see from the photographs looks like a very beautiful, healthy aquarium with a thriving community of plants and fish. Unfortunately the photographs, simply due to the size of the tank, don't show it off very well making it hard to judge.

It is a very big layout. The composition is in disorder.

Takashi Amano

Wow! A beautiful and truly massive tank. Clearky its size and positioning also made it a challenge to photograph. I like the sweeping school of cardinals, but this is a tank that clearly could show off some large fish to advantage. Is wish the aquarist had cleaned below the gravel line against the tank, and filled the tank up before photographing.
