Awards and Judge Comments

Very nice design, but the water is just too cloudy.

Karen Randall

I like the really old looking moss covered wood and mixed "grass" species background. They flow together nicely leading you to the negative space of your tank. However, the high contras macrandra and agustofoius in the very front pull your eyes away. The agustofolius needs to be better blended in with the moss and the macrandra can be removed. Make use of your hiding bolbitis in its stead.
