Awards and Judge Comments

This is a bright, pretty tank, but the stem plants have been allowed to grow into eachother in a rather shapeless mass. Try grouping them by species and then triming them to grow into thicker masses.

Karen Randall

Cubes are difficult to aquascape, but you did a great job; using fast growing stem plants and Riccia spp. The use of space is good the layout is also good. I do think the stem plants need a little more work you already have the skill to maintain this type of layout, play with your trimmimng to get the best of the stem plants.
