Awards and Judge Comments

Very nicely laid out and composed aquascape. I love the transition from foreground to background. Very nice layout!! If anything, maybe the fern in the middle section is a little strong.

The path is nicely placed, but the large dark mass of rock? wood? to the left of it really stops the eye. The plants are healthy, but seem to be a bit helter skelter.

Beautiful tank. I bet all of the fish love this tank! The right corner needs a little more maturity or another plants to fill in the corner. It appears a bit incomplete. Good job!
