Awards and Judge Comments

This is a beautiful aquascape that looks to have been planned and excecuted well. It could use some cleaning up though. The cloudy water and dirty glass are distracting and can easily be remedied. Some of the groupings of stem plants are a bit ragged and could use some attention, as could the moss on the right side. That planting of Alternanthera is beautiful, it's a shame that it's blocked by the tall grassy plant.

Phil Edwards

The Java moss and Riccia is a little overwhelming in this tank. It almost looks like the other plants are struggling up through it.

Karen Randall

The moss in the foreground is too much. There should be open space in the foreground, and fill the space in the background with stemmed plants.
