Awards and Judge Comments

Visually impressive aquarium with a strong sense of depth. The Altum Angels fit in well against the backdrop of liverwort covered driftwood. The sides of the aquarium are a little unorganized and the light/dark contrast ruins any feeling of unity throughout the composition. Regardless, it is still a lovely aquarium.

Phil Edwards

I think it does not fit for keeping Altum angel fish. The use of Nymphaea in the foreground negated the grand aquascape.

Takashi Amano

This is a lovely tank, with a deep, woodsy feel. It is unfortunate that the cloudy water, visible water line and equipment detract.
