Awards and Judge Comments

Nice beginner's tank, and I'm glad you got the "no equipment showing" message, though you don't need to shout it at us. Unfortunately, except for your lead picture, the water is cloudy in all the others, which detracts from your viability score. Lose the white angelfish too. (they'll just grow up to eat your cherry shrimp anyway!) From an aquascaping standpoint, while your plants are healthy and the tank is pleasing to look at, there is no clear design.
