Awards and Judge Comments

Interesting layout design that creates a pleasant overall impression. On closer inpection however, I feel the mixture of rocks and pebbles looks too unnatural, the glosso appears to be lacking someting (due to vertical growth) and the right hand side lacks interest.

George Farmer

Lush and well maintained tank, however the aquascape is severely divided into 3 blocky sections; the one on the right with the Cyperus, the one in the middle with the bogwood and stem plants, and the one one the left with the Glossostigma and open area. See if you can work toward more graceful transitions, perhaps with more cohesive mid-ground structure.
