Awards and Judge Comments

I like your hardscape, your foreground planting and your use of decorative sand. Unfortunately, the two dense columns of Rotala are very distracting, and break up the flow of the eye around the tank. You don't have much to do to make this a really exceptional aquascape!

There are a lot of very interesting parts to this layout. I find more the longer I look at it. I think the substrate could have benefited from some more sloping from front to back. This would have created some depth that this layout lacks.

Nice use of wood and rocks. The moss needs to be pruned and the Rotala needs to be shaped.
