Awards and Judge Comments

This is an aquascape with a lot of potential. Unfortunately, italso has some problems. The shape and palcemtn of the driftwood is very nice, and the growth of Rotala behind it has a nice, antural shape to it. But the rocks palced prominently to the far left, and the bare gravel area there pull the eye out of the scene. Also, the mosses have overgrown much of the tank to the extent that any shape is lost. This is one of the dangers of mixing mosss in a tank... none can show their beautiful shapes to full advantage!

The composition is good, and I personaly think the layout is rather young it could be more dense. The back ground and foreground are not consistent and the Rotala spp. is rigth at the center, also the fish selection could be better. The design is there! my opinion would be to wprk more on the design as a whole.
