Awards and Judge Comments

Attractive tank. The Alternanthera looks like a bit of an afterthought, though.

Karen Randall

Although the sweeping wood arrangement and photography was well done, the plant groupings in the background are a bit messy. They should be allowed to grow and then pruned at a slightly higher level to look more bushy and also hide the heater currently visible in the background.
