First Place

An artful display. You save it from rigidity by adding the Nymphaea on the right.

Karen Randall

What a refined, delicately beautiful layout! The mound is excellent constructed -- the driftwood branches draw the eye to other places of interest within the layuout. The L. aromatica provides a pleasant splash of color. My favorite aspect of this aquascape is the Nymphaea reaching up for the surface. It is so well done here. Great work!
