Third Place

I cannot get enough of your layout! I wish I could see it in person. with respect, I will tell you to pay more attention no size of your plant groups when you do a 2:1 layout. Is good; but I think it can be done even better, making it much better looking than what alreday is.

Luis Navarro

This is an interesting layout. However, it is a bit too young and I would like to see this tank develop a bit more. How does it look now two months later?

Ole Pedersen

A lot of work has clearly gone into this tank, and it is very pretty. It could be even better, however, if the aquarist had not divided the tank so evenly in half. The result makes it look almost like two separate aquascapes sitting side by side.
