Awards and Judge Comments

I like our mid ground planting, but your stem palnts could use some trimming to help them fill out and achieve a better shape. Your foreground is weak at the point these photos were takes, with what look to be small plugs of Eleocharis planted, but not given time to fill in. Likewise, it appears that you ahve randomly planted your Anubias, and dropped int eh roud stones and driftwood. Try to arrange your rockwork in a way that the stones relate to one another.

Allow the foreground to fill a little more and try not to use such small size rocks, the hair grass will hide them over time. use the space carefuly. Small, medium and tall plants are used correctly but the space is not, they seem to be to close from one another.

In general, I like the idea of this layout. However, the widespread use of "artificial" material, for example the smooth stone, is not really suitable for this layout...
