Awards and Judge Comments

Your tank is beautifully healthy, both plants and fish. This seems to be more of a planted fish tank than an aquascape, however. That said, there's absolutely nothing wrong with that. You've got absolutely gorgeous fish, and they deserve a beautiful backdrop. I also love seeing your big pink Lagenandra. This is a plant I really enjoy, and you hardly ever see it in an aquascape.

Beautiful lotus and discus! The fish must love this tank! The Lagenandra is very impressive and quite striking in the aquascape. Very beautiful aquascape!

Bailin Shaw

Beautiful aquarium and beautiful discus. I bet your visitors spend hours staring at your setup!
