Awards and Judge Comments

Those are some beautiful angelfish -- this coming from someone who tends to like only wild type coloration in angels. Overall, the layout is pleasing with a very well done and very well grown in driftwood arrangement. Unfortunately, the driftwood arrangement and the rest of the aquascape do not really mesh together into a harmonious whole.

Carlos Sanchez

A pretty tank, but your driftwood/plant arrangement on the right is too heavy, and too far toward the end of the tank, leading to an uncomfortably unbalanced composition. (although I very much like your use of ferns moss & Anubias to soften the look of the big piece of wood!) And unfortunately, the school of white angelfish detracts from the tank rather than enhancing it.
