Awards and Judge Comments

A really like this aquascape! This peaceful, green toned aquarium shows interesting use of driftwood as small moss trees. My only complaints are that the round leaved carpeting plant (Micranthemum?) is spreading unevenly and a bit out of control and that the Vallisneria on the left should be replaced with something shorter or allow the Micranthemum to fill it in.

I think I would have named this the "Dr. Seuss Aquascape" with all those top-knotted "trees". Certainly an innovative design.
