Awards and Judge Comments

Nice use of open space. I like the way the driftwood lifts the Microsorum up off the bottom. The Glossostigma either needs to be grown in better or removed. Right now, it's not adding much. The stem plants in the back need another trimming or two to develop into nice full bushes.

The name is very fitting for this layout. Very enchanting layout.

Interesting use of wood and rockwork. The Java fern covered wood is striking and unique. The large rock on the right does not quite fit into the flow of the tank. Good job!
