Awards and Judge Comments

A pretty tank with lovely plants. It needs a better focal point though. Your driftwood piece isn't strong enough by itself, and the way it is placed leads the eye out of the tank.

Karen Randall

This layout is good I just think that the position of the plants could be much better my first impression made think that it looks too crowd! but is not, is the planting! you could easily create 2 solid sections, allowing the design to have more depth. The tank is tall so you colud make the composition better by perfecting your planting.
