Awards and Judge Comments

A bright, pretty tank, but your foreground plantings are taking over, becoming so tall they obscure the plants behind. You might want to think about replanting that section. (foregrounds do need to be redone from time to time) Also, although most of your plants are healthy looking, there are a few dead and damaged leaves. Make sure you clip those before taking photos for a competition!

Nice use of colours and textures with healthy plant growth - well done there. However, the foreground is too overgrown, hiding any effective midground.
