Second Place

Lovely design, carefully planned and beautifully executed.

Even though the tank holds 24 gallons it's only 18 inches long, and you did a good job using the space. I have only one coment to make. The Blyxa aubertii is a tall plant but it has color that can be used not only to add even more depth to your layout but contrast as well. If the plants was next to the Rotala spp. the back ground will change for better I think, and a dense group of Cryptocorine are placed where the B aubertiiis is will make the tank look so much better! I don't mean to teaching you! I just see a great layout that can be kept for a long time just looking better and better.
