Second Place

Rich, pretty little aquascape that shows a lot of depth. Nice use of your wood to make the "roots" growing down through the plants.

Karen Randall

Great depth. Peaceful. The mix of plants looks very natural. Great achievement with this nano tank. The creator will be working against the nature of the Rotala rotundifolia and the Mayaca fluviatillis to keep them at this height. The Hydrocotyle maritma doesn't really add anything to the scape and may actually be a distraction. The driftwood in the way back doesn't look like it belongs. It would have been better if the scale and branching matched the others and if plants were around it as well.

Drinda Jacobson

The overall impression is very strong and natural. The use of plants is very skillfull. You must only improve the use of the images reflected in the glasses on both sides. Even then, good job!

Luca Galarraga

Beautiful layout, nicely trimmed. Driftwood selection must be paid attention with similar form, texture and shape.

Inderjeet Singh Bansal

Very very nice. Extremly detailed and a amazing deep effect because of the small root behind. Great!
