Awards and Judge Comments

Very nice tank with lovely rockwork. The one slightly jarring note is the H. polysperma which just looks a little coarse with your other, more delicate plants.

Karen Randall

Rocks are RAW!

Justin Law

This tank has the very odd illusion of seeming like you are stairing at the top of the tank if you look at the upper stem plant crowns. The lucens feels out of place and clashes against your rotala and grasses. You It feels a bit too collectorish in the back. Cutting back a bit on species will help pull things together.
