Awards and Judge Comments

Good low light aquarium! This is a case where a large grouping of Microsorum works well. The thinly covered wood and spotty coverage on the left side weaken it compared to the right. Unless the wood is a part of the middle structure it is not necessary and its removal would help improve the overall balance of the composition.

Phil Edwards

Another nice low light tank. The aquarist has put some thought into layout here. Unfortunately, the large expanse of exposed back glass doesn't add much to the complete picture.

Karen Randall

It is a convex composition layout, but not clear enough. More stemmed plants in the background. Only green plants. More accents are necessary.
