Second Place

Nice rock work, and a very pleasing layout. I particularly like the fact that the two mounds are asymmetrical, but still echo each other.

Karen Randall

The strongest part of this tank in my opinion, is the coloration. Various greens, and enough reds without being overwhelming. The quasi echoing mounds work together well, but the gap between feels a bit large.
