Awards and Judge Comments

Moss doesn't get as much credit as other aquatic plants, but the designer creates a whole layout based upon moss using other aquatic plants to complement his design. Just one comment opening is the right section could, I think be more open to create a much deeper look; this and keeping the tall plants in the back not allowing them to reach the front. Very nice!

Luis Navarro

How do you do that? At first, the layout seems messy and without a plan. But then, when you start looking this aquarium wins over time. Good try!

Ole Pedersen

While clean, healthy and attractive, this tank lacks a clear focal point and definition.
