Awards and Judge Comments

Beautiful, halthy growth and a lovely selection of plants and wood. Long shallow tanks are a challeng to aquascape, and this one proves that point. It is almost as if you have two very nice aquascapes end-to-end. Cut the tank in half with your hand, and you'll see what I mean. Either side is stronger than the whole put together. That said, I want to emphasize the difficulty of working with a tank with these dimensions. Taking that into consideration, it is very nicely done.

Very nice use of spacing. This tank was very close. Replace the Hemianthus on the right foreground with the E. tenellus used in the other sections and this tank will really stand out. As is, the HM seems out of place. Nice tank!
