Awards and Judge Comments

Lovely tank. Beautiful form; well chosen, well placed hardscape and very nice choice of plants and fish. Really nicely done!

Karen Randall

Very nice low-light and low-maintenance layout. I feel the strong rockwork would benefit from some stronger use of wood for balance. The black hole in the centre of the aquascape would benefit from some more rocks and/or planting - Anubias, perhaps? Overall, it's well done.

George Farmer

A beautifully composed aquascape. The "naturalness" of this photo entry might have benefitted if the mosses and Bolbitis had been allowed to grow out more, especially in the left side. That's a minor complaint in an otherwise artful display.
