Honorable Mention

What a vibrant aquarium! Everything looks healthy and well growing. The large bunch of similarly shaped and colored plants is overly strong. Replacing one of the species with larger leaved plant would tie the two sides of the aquascape together better. Another Crypt species or a plant with strong horizontal traits such as Ammania or Nesea might be good alternatives.

Phil Edwards

What is there to say... simply a beautiful tank!

Karen Randall

It is a triangular composition. The layout could have looked better if large leaf plants were used in the left side, and small leaf plants in the right. Cryptocoryne may destroy the balance.
