Awards and Judge Comments

Your basic rockwork isn't bad, though I would replace the large one on the right with a stone with character more in keeping with the others. However, the plants have completely overgrown most of your hardscape. You need either stronger hardscape, or lighter plants that allow the rockwork to show.

Karen Randall

A nice start to your tank. The plants need to be pruned as they now over power the your hardscape. Add some different stem plants with more color to the back of the tank.
