Awards and Judge Comments

Very pretty tank more in the Dutch style than most that we see. Very nice use of diagonal lines. This is one of the few cases in the contest this year where Alternanthera has been used in a way that ads to to layout rather than stealing the show. Lovely job!

You can grow plants well, I can see that! try working moree on your composition and focus on the foreground and middle section this will help your design a lot!
