Awards and Judge Comments

Nicely designed, very formal layout style and the tank is beautifully maintained. I'm not a fan of "fancy" fish varieties in an aquascape, especially a formal one like this, as they draw attention away from the planting.

Karen Randall

Impressive use of colourful stem plants that are clearly well-maintained. The layout is well-balanced but I feel the two main groups of green stems (Eriocaulaceae?) towards the centre appear a little too symmetrical. Overall, very nice job!

George Farmer

A very pretty display of contrasting colors and plant forms. This is the work of a skilled plantsman.
