Awards and Judge Comments

Your basic design and hardscape is very nice, as is your foreground. However, the planting within the island design is too uniform in leaf size, color and tone. Try for a bit more variety there, and the tank will be stunning!

Karen Randall

A nice start to this aquascape! The foreground is nicely done. The plants in the back and the bolbitus needs to be shaped and different colored plants added for contrast.
