Awards and Judge Comments

Very nice tank with pleasing lines. Well maintained with good trimming technique obvious.

Karen Randall

Excellent layout with great variation in textures. If anything, the Java fern is a little too dominating and the glosso looks too immature. But these are minor drawbacks from an otherwise superb aquascape. Well done.

George Farmer

This aquascape successfully presents a good sense of time passage. However, since Microsorium is growing too densely, it gives the viewers visually a feeling of pressure. In this case, giving the plants a drastic trimming will result in a nice outcome. The distribution of the stemmed plants are concentrated on the right side. They should be arranged evenly over the layout.
