Awards and Judge Comments

This is quite a nice monochromatic aquascape. Nice use of differnt leaf shapes and textures keep it from being boring. I wish the rockwork was a little stronger, or, perhaps the addition of some nice branchy drifwood would add interest.

Nice use of rocks and wood. The Java fern is a little too overgrown and dominating on the left and the stems to right would benefit from a prune. The glosso seems to be suffering a little. Overall though, the composition is good.
