Awards and Judge Comments

Beautiful rockwork and lovely, graceful planting. it's just a shame that your foreground plants didn't have enough time to grow in!

Karen Randall

Gorgeous display of colours and textures. The rockwork is excellent too. It's a pity the glosso has not filled in. I would have loved to see this aquascape after a few more weeks of growth/pruning of the stems.

George Farmer

An impressive visual punch of color. This layout has a casualness that is quite pleasant. The right side is so flush with color that the left side has been rendered less important. Balance is critical in good design. By the way, should we judges score this entry based on the background color we like or on the one we dislike? The entrant might not like the answer. These and other design decisions should be made before pictures are sent in.
