Awards and Judge Comments

Pretty tank, but a little unbalanced. Sloping layouts can work well, but in this case, the planting ends abruptly, with the vertical Eleocharis too close to the middle of the tank.

Karen Randall

Your plants and fish are in top condition, your trianguar composition allows the plenty of room for the fish to shoal peacefuly. The discus thoug, they will grow and as far as Ithey enjoy blowing the sand therefore open spaces. Discus are amazing fish and matching a layout for their needs is difficult.

Luis Navarro

Planted discus aquaria have become extremely popular during the last decade and seeing this layout, I understand why.
