Awards and Judge Comments

You have shown that you can grow two of the newer plants on the scene very, very well. However the aquascape is lacking. The round stones look simply scattered about, and the entire layout seems too flat.

Karen Randall

Beautiful plants! I have seen this layout before also, and what I really like, is the use of these rocks, that I happen to have acsses to it and yet I never have use before. The only comment is the Vallisneria nana, there is no much I can tell to the designer other than some times less is more. Good job!
