Awards and Judge Comments

Very pretty tank. I'm sure you know that in the long run, you will need a bigger home for your Altums, but at this stage, this tank is fine. I don't like the little sandy area all the way at the right hand edge of the tank... it makes the design a little off balance. Also, although the shape of your driftwood branches are nice, it would look better if there were either more showing, or less. As it is, the two lone pieces seem to poke out of nowhere.

Nice layout and well presented with good photographs. The lone driftwood branch on the right needs to be balanced with more prominent driftwood pieces on the left. The glosso carpet looks like it may be getting a little out of control and has almost obscured the foreground rockwork. Last, this aquarium might not be big enough for a school of full grown altums! Perhaps fish choice should be reconsidered.
