Awards and Judge Comments

Very nice display, and it's nice to be able to see the full installation rather than just the tank itself. While I like the background and your "stump", I wish the stump went all the way to the water surface, and didn't look "sawed off". I think I'd also like both the background and stump better if they were a little darker in color.
