Best of ShowFirst Place

Though not as complex or sophisticated as some of the other aquascapes the cleanliness, and elegance of this entry sets the bar for this category. Very well done.

Phil Edwards

Beautiful layout!! The wood is breath taking. Your positioning of the wood and moss is remarkable. Nice job on this beautifully composed layout. If anything the angels may be a little large for the layout.

Jason Baliban

Really eye-catching tank with incredible use of driftwood. It makes you want to know what is going on above the water surface.

Karen Randall

Amazing use of wood and the use of moss to blend it into an aquascape! I really like the stump, but the wood from above is distracting even though this is the premise of this tank. Stunning tank!
