Awards and Judge Comments

Pretty tank that could use more definition to the planting. While Eichhornia azurea is a beautiful plant, it is hard to incorporate into an aquascape, and it doesn't work particularly well here. Likewise, the single stick of driftwood showing on the left, and the single rock on the righ look out of place. Finally, PLEASE remove the algae magnet from the side of your tank before photographing. That is a dead-easy piece of equipment to remove!
