Awards and Judge Comments

Nice use of your diagonal path, but your background plants need some more trimming, and time grow into nicer, bushier shapes.

Karen Randall

Very nice close of photos of the fish, plants, and shrimp!

Jason Baliban

With a little more growth and definition, this could be a really nice tank. The moss in the very front of the tank needs to be pruned and moved as it seems out of place in the foreground. The Proserpinica is beautiful!
