Awards and Judge Comments

Third Place

Nice tank, planted with a clear design plan. It is just a little too tight and manicured. Allow the plants to grow out into slightly more natural shapes. In the process, this might allow you to hide the equipment if it can't be removed.

Karen Randall

Plants are very healthy in this layout and chosen well for the desired effect the aquarist wanted. This aquascape shows a very high trimming technique skill level which should be commended! Just as a side note, when photographing your aquariums for competitions, please take out visible equipment.

Carlos Sanchez
