Awards and Judge Comments

Wow! This certainly is a wild wall of plants! Everything looks healthy, and I'm sure it is an enjoyable tank, both for its owner, and the fish who live there. But there is no coherent design to the planting, and the only touch of color to relieve the solid green mass is on the far right end of the tank. You can get away with this type of set-up because you are keeping labyrinth fish (air breathers). You can see that they cluster at the surface because they need more oxygen than is available below. I keep these fish too, and in a well oxygenated tank, they do not stay at the surface.
