Awards and Judge Comments

The name certainly fits your tank! It is a pretty community tank, and obvioulsy a good home for your fish, since they are reproducing there. That in itself is something to be proud of! Some well-defined hardcape materials in the mid-ground would help provide focus for your tank, without taking away all those hiding places which make it possible for your fish to reproduce.

Your title says it all. There are too many plant species to be able to provide a well-balanced aquascape. Congratulations on being able to grow so many plants at one time!
