Honorable Mention

Pretty tank. While some areas without plants can add to an aquascape, I think, in this case, you've left too large an area bare.

Karen Randall

Fore ground needs more plants, Good use of moss on the wood.

Inderjeet Singh Bansal

Good tank balance. The hardscape if great. The weeping moss on the driftwood is very effective. The Hygro pinnatifida is a disconnect with the rest of the scape. It's to harsh for the rest of the flora. The scape lacks a definitive focal point so that the aforementioned Hygro becomes the focal point.

Drinda Jacobson

Thats really cool...I love the moos coming down from the roots. Very impressive.
