Awards and Judge Comments

The angle of photography does not really show this aquascape at its best, which is a shame because it seems like a really nice aquascape. Also, hide the equipment during photos! The plant choie of differing textures and differing shades of green is really soothing and refreshing. In this aquascape, the cardinals are just right. Good work.

Carlos Sanchez

You've done a lot with a relatively low amont of light over such a large tank. However, the planing could use a little better definition and perhaps some variety in leaf shape through the use of some larger leafed Anubias, or color, with the use of either a red Crypt, or Nymphaea, both of which would do fine with this light level. I think you have depended a little too much on your Java moss, to the point that it gives the tank a "fuzzy" look.

Karen Randall

This is a natural looking aquascape that flows well.
