Awards and Judge Comments

Very good creation of depth... you can really "feel" going around the bend. Lovely tank, but I think it could be even nicer with a little better selection and/or placement of wood. These stop the eyes as they try to peek around the corner. Also, your Rotala magenta doesn't seem to be doing as well as your other plants. If you can't get some better growth out of it, I suggest trying to substitute a different red plant that does better in your water conditions.

The driftwood are too thin and cannot draw the attention of viewers!

This scape lacks focus with both the hardscape(or lack there of with just the one out of place branch) and the plants. You have a really well groomed hemianthus mound with sparce and disjointed plants behind and to the right of it. Filling out some of the plants and matching your pruning through, along with somehardscape definition would help a fair bit.
