Awards and Judge Comments

Great use of color, texture, and proportion in this layout. Unfortunately, the fact that it is highly overgrown detracts from this otherwise attractive aquarium.

Carlos Sanchez

I like the lacey, pastel look to this tank. It's a bit overgrown, however. I think it would look better with the Rotalas trimmed just short of the water's surface.
