Awards and Judge Comments

Attractive, healthy aquarium! The aquarist should be proud of his/her efforts. Everything looks to be growing well with little algae in the tank. The dominating group of H. micanthemoides and sparse foreground detract from an otherwise well done aquascape.

Phil Edwards

A pretty, healthy tank, but hard to maintain with so many stem plants in a small tank. At the moment, the design is off balance, with a heavy mass of plants to the right, and only sparse growth on the left. Also, the Glossostigma really hasn't had time to fill in.

Karen Randall

Stones are used for the layout, but it lacks natural feeling. The stone appears too much. It should be covered with the plants in the foreground.
