Awards and Judge Comments

Lovely tank, with very good balance and depth and excellent trimming. The only thing I don't care for is the use of the hard-edged dark grey stones sprinkled through the path. You might want to try fewer, slightly larger stones instead.

Karen Randall

A well-balanced layout with good use of wood and stem plants. You have used just the right amount of red planting too. The rocks appear a little unnatural in their spacing across the sand.

George Farmer

I feel the way of spreading sand and planting a bit rough. I see the plants has not been grown enough, and the layout could be better by repeatedly making pruning. By trimming the plants, the plants grow thick and the whole layout would be well organized.
