Awards and Judge Comments

Your title says what it is but not why. Both sides of your tank are lovely, but they don't work very well together. Iwagumi is a very exacting art form that depends largely on balance. The planting on the left, while pretty pulls the layout OUT of balance in a rather extreme way.

Karen Randall

The right section seems a little busy and the rocks are small for the size of your tank. Tank is clean and plant health is excellent.
