Awards and Judge Comments

This appears almost chaotic in its design but overall the effect is pleasing. The large crypt leaves spoil the sense of scale a little, but the other textures and colour work well. I feel this aquascape may also benefit from some more visible rocks or wood.

Very pretty tank, rich with texture. The Cryptocoryne leaves seem a little coarse for this size scape.
