Awards and Judge Comments

Very attractive aquascape with good, strong rockwork. Your path is lovely but I'd prefer it not quite so close to the center. Either you have oversaturated the reds in this photo, or you've pushed your plants awfully hard with nutrients. Either way, I prefer a more natural shade of red. These are beautiful plants in their own right!

Brilliant aquascape! Hardscape composition/selection is superb, as is your bold planting with impressive pruning technique. I particularly like the way the plants intermingle between the rocks. One question... Is that glosso orange?! Very well done!

George Farmer

The aquatic plants are carefully trimmed, and the layout is maintained in a great condition. But, the way driftwood was arranged looks unnatural. I think it might be better if the aquascape was composed without driftwood.
