Awards and Judge Comments

Very attractive tank. Well placed rock work and nice use of the rule of thirds.

Karen Randall

Nice Iwagumi! Well composed and selected rockwork but I feel the background E. vivapari is a little too messy in contrast to the well-manicured remainder of the aquascape. Good fish selection.

George Farmer

A "valley" of quiet grace. This wispy display is compelling in its simplicity. It introduces a design element that we aquascapers so often overlook...that of empty space. How less dramatic this scene would be if the Eleocharis formed a complete wall across the background. That mysterious black void is a master touch.
