Awards and Judge Comments

Impressive healthy plant growth, but the composition lacks any effective focal point. Some rock or wood would improve things considerably. Also the white suction pad is very distracting. Consider removing equipment, cleaning glass etc. prior to photography to enhance the aquascape.

George Farmer

Lovely little tank, with a thoughtful layout. Some rockwork or wood might help it make more of a statement. Unfortunately, there was a slight haze at the time these photos were taken, and the glass is dirty with snails crawling on it. Try to pay attention to those details when you are taking your pictures!
