Second Place

Nice iwagumi! I enjoy the "u shape" Muito bonito! Navarro

Luis Navarro

I'm not usually a big fan of fancy guppies as aquascape residents, but they work very well in this understated but beautiful layout. The layout of your rockwork is very strong, and the plant choices are stunning!

Karen Randall

A true masterpiece of its class! The asymmetry in an otherwise symmetrical composition is working extremely well. I’ve noticed a thin layer of algae on the driftwood but in this case I believe it merely adds to layout’s look.
