Awards and Judge Comments

Please remember that this is an aquascaping contest, not a contest for fancy lighting techniques. If you need to explain why a piece of equipment is in the tank, it probably shouldn't be there. While your lighting gives the tank a moody feel, it doesn't make it easy to evaluate your aquascape technique.
