Awards and Judge Comments

First Place

Aw-sum layout, very good use of stone. The rippling water on the top created by a gentle blower avoids the reflection during photography from a lower angel.

Inderjeet Singh Bansal

The layout arrangement is impressive. The use of perspective lines of stones is very original and natural. The use of side glass reflections is skillful, and the aquarium seems endless ... Congratulations for this piece of art.

Luca Galarraga

Amazing rock work. Great depth. Love the plant growth on the rocks without obscuring them. Very well done. Utricularia graminifolia has a great look in the scape but is not a particularly easy plant to keep long term.

Drinda Jacobson

Absolut impressive, the rock formation is great.
