Third Place

A beautiful, lush colorful celebration of colors, leaf size, and texture. I am very impressed by this amazing, large stem plant layout! The substrate, however, would preferably be flat in the front instead of rolling up and down.

Carlos Sanchez

Beautiful tank! While in some cases I have commented on the use of too many red plants, in this aquascape, you have managed to carry it off in spite of a heavy emphasis on red. I like your driftwood placement, and love the soft flowing line of the foreground planting. And you've managed to divide the tank at the right place to give us just a peek at your interesting background.

Nothing like a healthy Hemianthus foreground.
