Awards and Judge Comments

Lovely tank that shows what a stunning display can be achieved with very few species of plant. But why oh why did you leave the spary bar across the front of the tank when you took the pictures!?!

Karen Randall

An impressive aquarium and surely the centerpiece of the room it stands in. Fish and plants are in the peak of health. Notwithstanding its good qualities, it can be vastly improved by trying to integrate the driftwood pieces more smoothly into the plant groupings. The branches are too bare and lifeless, as well. Adding mosses, ferns, and Anubias nana to the bases should help immensely in both regards. Also, the gap between the two mounds of colorful stem plants is too centered so move it to one side some more. Remove the Eheim spray bar next time when taking photos.
