Awards and Judge Comments

A very nice, mature, and healthy planted aquarium. The rummynose tetras look to be robust and in good health, as are the vibrant plant groupings. For next time, please take out equipment (spray bar) before taking photos and crop out the surface scum!

Carlos Sanchez

A pretty aquascape with a lot going on. It's too bad the water isn't clearer. You need to remove your equipment for an aquascaping contest, or allow the plants to grow up and hide it. In this case, except for the spray bar, I think the plants could easily cover the equipment.
