Awards and Judge Comments

This is a lovely, bright tank with lots of healthy growth. It's hard to develop a cohesive design in a long tank like this, but the use of stronger midground hardscape would help you do it!

Karen Randall

Amazing plant health, especially considering no liquid fertilisation - I'm impressed! The foreground is a little overgrown and reduces the feeling of depth to the composition. Taller beackground stems will have balanced out this minor issue a little.

George Farmer

A lush flurry of color and healthy plants on a grand scale.
