Awards and Judge Comments

It's nice to see a few more Dutch style tanks this year. This tank is full of beautiful plants and is well grown. But see if ou can dvelop more diagonal lines to lead the eye through the aquascape. The lines are just a little too vertical as it stands now.

Yet another beautiful Tonina tank! I love your plants! Having so many plants you could plants try using the color a little more to have more consisten groups, they look fine but the color in the picture are similar in the back and using color for contrast will change your tank. Very dutch like! perhaps you can use the technique in the future. awesome plants!
