Awards and Judge Comments

Nice pleasing overall look. The color palette is done very well. It needs more depth. The hole on the upper left is a big distraction. The hardscape is done very well. The Myriophyllum mattogrossense and the Hygrophila polysperma will be very difficult to maintain longterm as they grow so fast.
