Awards and Judge Comments

This is one of the best balanced aquascapes I've seen in this showcase. The mixture of colors and shades combined with proper plant placement works very well together. While the fish look beautiful in their home, I'm not sure so many potentially large fish will work out well in the long term.

Phil Edwards

Pretty tank and a nice balance between aquascape and home for nice fish!

Karen Randall

Balance of stemmed plants and foreground plants are nice, but I felt the impression the layout was made by pruning the plants just before the shooting the picture.
