Awards and Judge Comments

Yet another good example of a long term layout! I say this time and time over, and particularly in this category because the size of these tanks! The middle secton as well as the foreground are very well done. The back I think can be improved not only to hide the overflow boxes, but to add more depth to the whole composition.

Good, good, good! A great layout indeed. However, a higher score could have been obtained by trying to cover the hardware a bit...

Really eye-catching aquascape. Where it falls down slightly is in the tangle of plants up in the branches of the driftwood. It is hard to tell exactly what is happening in those areas, so it dras the eye away from the really nice aquascaping below.
