Awards and Judge Comments

Interesting and innovative aquascape. I like the nice diagonals in the rockwork very much. Your driftwood "tree" is a well executed touch of whimsy.

Karen Randall

Excellent layout that has been obviously very well maintained. The rockwork is excellent and the Hemianthus covered driftwood is a interesting addition. Well done!

George Farmer

I'm fascinated by that freeform piece of driftwood. I half expect it to start moving. What fun! The placement of the rocks nicely enhances the slope of the hillside. The rest of the plantings, however, are so disjointed from the center that any sense of balance is lost.
