Third Place

Nicely done!

Ricky Cain

This aquascape is a bit too symmetrical with too many similar leaf shapes. The overly large wood dominates an otherwise delicate aquascape. One or two pieces, particularly the far right piece, would be sufficient. Even so, the concept behind the aquascape is solid and the plants are growing very well. It could use some time to grow into the hardscape.

Phil Edwards

Left side driftwood is too big. Three driftwood does not placed in harmony.

Takashi Amano

This is a very pretty tank; beautifully designed and presented. As with several other tanks this year, you could make it even nicer by trimming your stem plants so that they branch rather than growing straight up.
