Awards and Judge Comments

While nice and healthy, this tank is a bit of a tangle, with nothing to lead the eye through the tank, and nowhere for the eye to rest.

Karen Randall

Very apt title! The wild, almost overgrown apperance is very well composed and creates an impressive display. The spikey textures of the stem plants balance well with the softer mosses. Very well done!

George Farmer
