Awards and Judge Comments

Very pretty tank with good use of color. Pleasing use of diagonal lines in some places. Nice job!

Karen Randall

Your plants are haelthy and the tank is clean! I would like to suggest you to work on your trimming technique to get the best of the stem plants as well as the composition of your design.

Luis Navarro

I am not sure that I agree that the name is appropriate. I find the layout too complex and with way too many species of plants.
