Awards and Judge Comments

Lovely understated tank. I really like it!

Karen Randall

I have seen your work before and your are good man! I like the composition, the use of space; The tank is very well mainatained and the plants are just healthy. More than a comment, I am trying to understand why the L brevipes? The layout is solid with Anubias spp. and ferns. Why not using stem plants in both sections to have more harmony? Your foreground and middle section are outstanding!

A fabulous planted aquarium which I would love to host in my home! I believe the Hemianthus carpet has not been seen any better than this. Well done indeed.
