Awards and Judge Comments

Attractive, well designed aquascape.

Karen Randall

Excellent triangular composition! The extensive use of L. aromatica is very effective and fitting for your title. I also like the wood layout with it protruding from the water. My main critisism is your fish choice, as the large angelfish spoil the sense of scale and they appear a little cramped. A smaller deep-bodied fish would have been more effective.
