Awards and Judge Comments

This could be a really good aquascape if the plants were trimmed better and the small plantings were removed. The rocks under the overly tall Glossostigma should either be uncovered and moved away from the glass or removed entirely.

Phil Edwards

The plant growth speed is inconsistent. There are not enough amount of stemmed plants in the background.

Takashi Amano

A bright, sparkling and attractive tank, but without any clear focus.
