Awards and Judge Comments

Lots of vibrant growth, and the basic hardscape is nice. However, the Fissidens had grown to such a thickness that it really overwhelms the rest of the aquascape.

Karen Randall

Very nice use of Fissidens on the driftwood. Nice soft lines with good use of the Staurogyne and Narrow Leaf Java fern. A little more growth of your foreground and the tank will be complete. Great job.

I love the contrast of textures in this layout. The fissidens on the wood is very cool! It is not my taste, but it is remarkable in its own right! Very cool layout!
