Awards and Judge Comments

Attractive, and shot at a good point in the tank's life cycle. However, using a plant like H. difformis in the middle of the foreground, bsides draw the eye away from your lovely upsweep on the right, is a very temporary solution. Try to simplify your foreground planting to fewer species and it will look a bit less chaotic.
