First Place

Yet another excellent aquarium. Compositionally this is one of the best in the whole showcase. The choice of plants was right on and the mid and forgrounds are just about perfect. Unfortunately the stemplants in the background look thin and overtrimmed. Try topping and replanting to thicken up the bunches. It wouldn't hurt to remove the equipment when shooting photos next time either. Aside from those two things, very well done!

Phil Edwards

Pretty tank with beautiful rockwork and nice lines in the mid ground. The mid-ground plants have been beautifully trimmed. However the background plants have been allowed to get tall and rangy, rather than being trimmed to make them fuller. If the equipment in the right corner couldn't be removed, the plants should have been allowed to grow up and hide it before the photos were taken.

Selection and use of stones are excellent, but the plant condition is not perfect. Selection of Hygrophila polysperma var. was not good.
