Awards and Judge Comments

This aquascape is excellent for showing off the Cardinal tetras living in it. The darker plants help the fish pop out at the viewer. It's not a bad aquascape either. Using a greater variety of stemplants in the background and trimming them so that they fill in rather than grow up would enhance the aquacape. The lobelia could use some bolstering too, the planting looks a bit thin. I like the thin planting of the large Echinodorus tenellus. They're planted just thick enough to look full, but are far enough apart to really let them show off. I'm reminded of a short palms or Cycads.

The plants were just planted.

Pleasant tank, but your stem plants need some time and pruning to help them fill out and become bushier. Your clumps of Java moss are a little distracting too.
