Awards and Judge Comments

This is an eye-catching tank with an unusual look. I like waht you've done with the plants and the rockwork. I think, however, that your many species of brightly colored fish (who don't school together since they are different types of fish) pull the eye away from the work you've done on the aquascape.

Karen Randall

Very bold design in terms of composition and use of colour, but it works very well indeed! Your pruning and plant maintenance is clearly excellent but I would have like to see less emptiness on the left. I think fewer species of fish would have suited the layout better. These are minor niggles to what is an excellent aquascape. Very well done!

George Farmer

A lush tribute to good grooming. With pleasure, the viewer's eye is led over gently rolling hills and dales.
