Awards and Judge Comments

This aquascape shows a lot of potential. The linear groupings of stemplants don't do much for the visual interest of the composition. Try trimming them and replanting the cuttings to increse the bulk of the plantings. Experiment with creating different shapes tiers of plantings. Right now the background looks like a wall of plants which isn't very appealing. Have fun and experiment with your plants!

Hemianthus should not be used for the foreground.

Another beautiful, gigantic tank. Where the last one was, perhaps slightly overcrowded, in this tank, some of the stem plants need time to grow up and fill in, while others need to be trimmed back to allow their tank mates to catch up.
