Awards and Judge Comments

This is another tank where the composition on one end is much stronger than the other. In this case, the left hand sid is quite nice, while the rigid rows on the right do nothing to improve the aquascape. You have broken the design at the right point, but it is really too bad that you left you filter return sitting there to stop the eye, in what should be restful "negative space". Improve the right side of this tank, and it would be an excellent aquascape. I love that you included the view of the tank through the French doors. What a wonderful sight to great visitors!
