Awards and Judge Comments

I have mixed feelings on this tank. The color composition is lovely. An odd growing use of the repens but the colors bite at you. The reason I am mixed, is that when I look at the tank as a whole it feels a bit messy with the sag and nanjenshan, but when I blur my eyes or look from afar, it as a very "painting" like quality to it.

You have some good things going on in your tank, but the Ludwigia, while brilliant, is also a little overpowering. Try using color more as an accent than as the show-stealer.
