Awards and Judge Comments

Interesting design let down a little by the contrast in heights between the main 'island' and Blyxa aubertii. The lily is very distracting too.

George Farmer

Very attractive tank, well designed and executed. I think it might be even a bit better if the Eleocharis extended all the way across the front of the tank. In such a beautiful aquascape, it would also be nice if you had been able to remove the last few floating bits on the surface.

Karen Randall

The aubertii seems very healthy but it's too abrupt and upright, overwhelming the rest of the scene. Blend it more seamlessly into the body of the plantings. Give the viewer a strong focal point in the foreground to, hopefully, take the eye off of the aubertii. Hone your plant trimming technique for a tighter plant presentation.
