Awards and Judge Comments

Great depth. Love the leaf color, texture, size and shape mixture. There are a few places (center back) where the moss in the upper portions of the tanks actually distract from the scape. There are a few too many varieties in some of the spaces. Using less would have given it a less cluttered look without taking anything away from the overall look, such as the plant growing up through the Proserpinica Palustris. It looks like there is either equipment in the tank or a couple of driftwood pieces in the back right portion of the tank that don't belong.
