Awards and Judge Comments

This is a lovely mature tank, but you needed to let the stem plants grow out just a little bit more before taking competition photos. And while it's nice that you have all those fancy ADA pieces, the tank would present better with them removed.

This is a tank where I wish 1) there was no hardware in the shot 2) the shot was in focus 3) the foreground was more developed. The hardscape is my favorite part of this work and I think there is a lot of potential in it.
