Awards and Judge Comments

Very attractive tank. The design would be stronger if some hardscape materials were used to form a mid ground. This serves two purposes. To give the tank structure and cohesiveness, even just after a trimming, and to fill in that area under your stems. In these photos, that area is hidden in dark shadows, but the bottom of stem plants tend to get leggy and unattractive at times.
