Awards and Judge Comments

This is a lovely community tank. I'm sure it is enjoyed by all who have the chance to see it. But in terms of aquascaping it is a little bit of a smorgasbord!

Karen Randall

Try planting in order, this helps a lot! also there is too many fish differnt of sizes. You can grow plants well organize your tank a little better and you will enjoy it even more!

Luis Navarro

"Wedges of Color" indeed! But I fail to see the overall layout plan in this tank. The plants seem a bit too randomly placed though a good feeling of depth is achieved.
