Awards and Judge Comments

A good aquascape with good rock positioning and interesting choice of fish. However, for some reason, the plant groupings placed around the rocks are very dark and hard to see. What can be seen does not appear to be in good health.

Carlos Sanchez

This is a beautifully designed tank. I love the way you have used moss to soften the look of the rocks as I sometimes find Iwagumi layouts a little too harsh. It is a shame that your stem plants hadn't filled out a little more. In their current state, the tank would almost present better without them. Very nice choice of fish.
