Awards and Judge Comments

Very nice aquascape. However, the large stand of Ludwigia is a bit overwhelming and the the left end of the tank looks a bit sparse at this point in time.

Karen Randall

Superb aquascape in all aspects! Excellent plant and fish choice, composition, effective use of hardscape with interesting open and full areas. I can see this layout just getting better with age and so the title is very appropriate. My only niggle is that the focal red Ludwigia is perhaps a little to central, but does little to detract from an overall very impressive piece. Very well done indeed!
