Awards and Judge Comments

This is a pretty tank with impressive driftwood, very nicely arranged. However you need to have more of a plan to your planting. It seems like a random tangle as it stands now. I assume you know that your baby Altums will quickly outgrow a tank of this size.

Karen Randall

This tank is nice the only remark is the use of space. The position of the driftwood is too close to the surface and this blocks the backgroud. The Polygonum is alos too much close to the center and makes it distracting. The layout is good just work more on your hard scape.
