Awards and Judge Comments

This tank is a little too red for my tastes. While it has clearly been carefully planted, some of the plants don't look healthy (Shinnersia) and the leaf sizes are a little lasrge for this size tank. WHile I understand that your cly pots are in there for the Apistos, they don't do much for the aquascape.
