Second Place

Your use of structure and simple plantings is very effective. The simplicity of nature expressed by this aquascape is refreshing.

Phil Edwards

Very interesting, creative display. Great wood, and I LOVE the reflections!

Karen Randall

Breathtaking layout! The positioning/selection of the wood creates an amazing impression!! I can imagine it was very challenging to fill the substrate with plants that would fill the area but not take away from the effect of the wood. Nicely done!

Jason Baliban

Beautiful layout! The placement of the wood is very impressive and the tank has a floating feel to it with the way the rasboras are swimming at the top. Nicely done!
