Awards and Judge Comments

This tank has potential, but it needs better trimming and shaping. The stem plants, particularly those on the left grow straight up and look awkward. Also, there are at least 4 species of plant, all bunched together, with no definition. On the left, the Microsorum nees to be thinned out and trimmed back a bit so that it doesn't doesn't unbalance the aquascape so much.

Clever title that is very fitting with the fern leaves like small snakes! The double-island composition is interesting and effective but I find my eye darting between the two. The red stems on the left, for me, are too dominating to balance the whole layout. Otherwise, a highly commendable aquascape. Well done!
