Awards and Judge Comments

Really nice layout, but one that speaks to the difficulty of having everything peak at the same time. Your foreground planting really hasn't filled in enough yet, while your Rotala is laying across the water surface and has become a little spindly below. See if you can keep trimming and shaping those stem plants while you wait for the Glosso to fill in. I think you may have a stunning tank to enter next year!

Your planted aquarium was not ready for a picture, I hope you understand this. The plant selection is good the fish complement your design but the plants need to grow more, allow this tank to mature. Trim your plants to shape your design even more. Good job

This is a great layout though I'd preferred to see a little denser cover, at least in patches, of the Glossostigma in the foreground. Also, I am not sure the floating branches of the stem plant to the left add to the over all impression of the layout.
