Third Place

Great little zen aquascape which shows beauty with simplicity. Excellent presentation. The standing rock, though, makes too strong of an impression and should be softened by allowing the stem plants and mosses to creep around its base.

Carlos Sanchez

Nicely designed layout. For the most part, I like your use of rocks. However, the vertically placed rock is too centered in the tank, and shortens the depth you might have achieved by having your gravel path bend around it. Good choice and use of plants. Your name, along with your lead picture, made me smile.

Karen Randall

Extremely well done . Rock placement is superb.
