Awards and Judge Comments

A very bold design that is executed well. The main rock is very dominating but I find it balanced nicely with the softness of the moss. A Pleasingly different design on the very popular Iwagumi concept - well done! One tip - The purple/pink background does little to enhance the natural feel of this layout....

George Farmer

Nice attempt, and well maintained. However, rour rocks are very blocky and imposing. Large rocks can be used effectively to make a strong statement, but try to find some with more pleasing lines, or soften these by allowing some plants to grow on them.

Karen Randall

This tank is overwhelmed by that "ogre" of a rock too prominently displayed. Perhaps the the position of the two rocks needs to be reversed with the monster buried in the corner. Once done, the right side will need to be brought into proper visual weight balance.
