Awards and Judge Comments

I like the way you have bridged the two ends of the tank together visually. However the planted areas, particulalry the one on the right are lacking in a clear design. It looks like all the plants are just mixed in together. Try to sort those areas out a little more, and the tank will be stunning!

The center driftwood provides a creative, smooth segue between the two plant groupings. It also serves to span, in the void below, the very compelling focal point. I'm sorry to note a piece of tank equipment visible on the far right.
