Awards and Judge Comments

Nice healthy plants, but the aquascape would work better with a little more variation in color/tone. All green tanks can work well, but then there needs to be some variety in tone and/or texture. The single sprig of R. macrandra is too small and too centered to act as a good accent... Instead, it just stops the eye. I'm not sure that the random pieces of driftwood poking up out of the lawn work well either.

What a vibrant tank! Try and shape the Rotala sp. green a bit more on the right side so the aquascape doesn't appear so centered in the tank and bring out some more stems of the Rotala macrandra. Nice tank!
