Awards and Judge Comments

I ranked this tank highly because of the intricate and very beautiful planting, and rock work. But I think I would have liked it even better if the wood wasn't quite so overwhelming.

Karen Randall

The layout is powerful and the driftwood looks to be alive ... The only point is the driftwood at the left, too heavy comparing with the others.

Luca Galarraga

Great hardscape. The moss placed only on the top of the branches lends a real life effect. The large log on the left reaching around to the back just doesn't fit. It would have been better to just include the smaller driftwood in the back. The rock work is wonderful. The foreground teasing forward and back is delightful.
