Awards and Judge Comments

Honorable Mention

I can't say much more about this aquascape other than Bravo! Everything is growing in balance and looks very healthy. Since it's my job to be nit-picky I would say that the choice of Glossostigma and E. tenellus may not be the best long term pair, but they look great together right now. Also, the large rock is a little too close to center and is jarring. It would be better placed slightly farther to the left.

Phil Edwards

A nice effort using a minimum of design elements. The rock placement would look better if it were tighter with the center rock being more offset. It comes off as dead center to the eye.

Ricky Cain

A lovely layout with plants and fish appropriate to the size of the tank.

Karen Randall

Stone in the center stands out. It is an Amano style layout, but more delicacy is necessary for rock arrangement.
