Awards and Judge Comments

An interesting design that is let down by too little planting density and poor substrate choice. The moss appears not to be attached with purpose and the 3rd darker rock does little to add to the layout. The Blyxa (?) in the background would look better when mature and allowed to form a background/midground.

George Farmer

Pleasant layout, though there is an awful lot of exposed gravel in such a small tank, and the color of the gravel is unpleasantly coarse and yellowish. The tank looks fairly newly established, and it is likely to improve with time. Using this many species of moss in one small tank is an invitation to lose them as distinct cultures as them intermix, and the stronger species outgrow the weaker ones.
