Awards and Judge Comments

Very pretty arrangement of plants, and the choice of fish is nice too. Unfortunately, your lack of fertilization is catching up with you. The Hygro is showing strong signs of nutrient deficiency in the pale edges of the leaves. It's a shame, because otherwise this is a very strong entry.
