Awards and Judge Comments

Love the right two tanks. The middle and right tank really work well together. They are both well laid out and balanced. The choice of plants, color and space work so well. It is so amazing how the scape just continues on. The left nano just doesn't seem to go with the others. There is too much plant type distinction between it and the others. You don't see the leaf shape repeated enough in it and the others. The wood is totally and completely different. The scape isn't as well balanced as the other two. Had this tank been omitted the other two would have scored extremely well.

Drinda Jacobson

Interesting idea and a professional realization.

Oliver Knott

Interesting concept, and clearly a lot of time and effort has gone into it. Unfortunately, the left had tank doesn't flow into the other two. If this were all one tank, it would still look like two different aquascapes end to end. That is an easy problem to have in long, shallow tanks!
