Awards and Judge Comments

Sweet mother of God! that's a lot of light! Your plants and fish are healthy, that's important the layout though I am sure can change it looks just by replacing the gray pebles with something that matches your open foreground.

Luis Navarro

This is among the most viable tanks among this year's entries! However, the very artificial substrate, including the stones, is to conspicious and attracts too much attention.

Ole Pedersen

Nice bright display, but lose the stones lining the edge of the plants. They look very unnatural, and pull the eye away from your beautiful plants. While the adds nice color to the tank, it is a little TOO much of a good thing. A smaller grouping, perhaps echoed elsewhere in the tank would give a splash of color that didn't overwhelm the rest of the display.
