Awards and Judge Comments

This is another amazing small aquarium. Everything about this aquascape tells me the aquarist knows what he or she is doing. The only (minor) flaw is the slightly overlarge H. difformis in the middle.

Phil Edwards

Lovely tank with a feast of texture and tone, and just the right touch of red. Great job!

Karen Randall

A beautiful blend of different shapes and colors! A few fewer species of plants and more emphasis on some other plants will make this tank pop! Nice tank!

Bailin Shaw

I love the foreground in this layout. I love the sand and the placement of the rocks. The plants are very lush.
