Awards and Judge Comments

I like to see a melding of Dutch & Asian styles. I'd like to see a little better use of diagonal lines in the planting, and the Madagascar lace plent would be better placed not so close to the center of the tank. That said, it is a very pretty tank!

I like your tank a lot the only problem I see is the Aponogeton! Personaly I don't think it belongs in a planted tank using stem plant only. Good trimming technique, as well as the composition!

I'm not too sure why it's called an Asian Dutchman. Well, the Dutch I can see - but where is the Asian. Never mind, it is a stylish layout with excellent growth.
