Awards and Judge Comments

This is a good example of a long term planted aquarium, where the plants species where carefuly choosen. The tank creates a relaxing yet elegant atmosphere around it. The only negative comment is the 4 groups of Cypherus helferii I wish there was 3 perhaps one much more dense than the other 2.

Luis Navarro

A very symmetric layout indeed; in fact, I find it a bit too symmetrical. The problem is really that when it is so close to "perfect" you start looking for mistakes and this distracts the observer of this otherwise wonderful tank.

Ole Pedersen

Very nice use of materials in the fore and mid ground. A little less regular placement of the Cyperus might make the design flow a bit more.
