Awards and Judge Comments

Very impressive! The rockwork is almost perfect and the fine textures of the moss work brilliantly to create a stunning layout. Combine this with the low lighting and low maintenance aspects and this layout is truly remarkable. Very well done indeed!

George Farmer

An interesting design, though I do not like the use of mixed mosses in the aquarium. I think your rockwork could be a little bolder, and less uniform throughout the tank.

Karen Randall

With all its nooks and crannies, this aquascape provides a very satisfying viewing experience. There are numerous, interesting places to look, including the intriguing cove (?) in the lower left. That seemingly simple feature defines the character of this display. Without it, the layout would be a shapeless wall.Thus the power of negative or empty space as an important design element.
