Awards and Judge Comments

I LOVE your mid-ground, and your simple, sand foregound works well. I don't like your Eleocharis background planting as much. It's a little messy and distracting.

Karen Randall

A nice tank centered on some striking pieces of driftwood. Some selective thinning of the Eleocharis on the right side will "clean" this tank up. Nicely done!

Bailin Shaw

Nice placement of the wood. I love the "wispyness" of the background and the pleasing nature of the sand in the front. The midground under the wood is a little solid and strong.
