Awards and Judge Comments

Interesting background choice, although I am not sure if it really works in this instance as it does not seem to add much to the overall display. The red plants hardly stick out from the red background. The aquascape, overall, seems to be very young and needs some time to mature.

This tank has clearly been carefully designed for this aquascaping contest. While it is a very attractive arrangement, it is almost too "perfect", giving me the impression more of a flower arrangement than a garden
