Awards and Judge Comments

This is an interesting tank with some nice hardscape, and vibrant plant growth. Unfortunately, the background plants have been trimmed too recently, without having sufficient time to grow back out into a nice shape.

Karen Randall

Love the rock work. Great depth. Great choice of plants. The background plants appear to have just been trimmed and do not have mature crowns. Wish the rocks on the left were a little more visible.

Drinda Jacobson

One odd piece of driftwood not selected properly can change the look of the tank as the one on the left side.

The hardscape is interesting, but the plants are recently trimmed and need time to grow again...
