Awards and Judge Comments

At first I wasn't sure whether I liked this tank, with its almost stark look. But it grew on me... I like the way the large piece of wood is laid in, and the suggestion of roots beneath. The plant arrangement is also very attractive, and the fish are appropriatel sized for the tank and for thier shrimp tank mates.

Nice choice of flora. The large root that runs horizontal through the tank is a bit distracting. If it had been partially obscured and then re-appeared the overall affect would be better. The Hygrophila pinnatifida needs to be either thicker or absent.

Drinda Jacobson

I liked the idea, but the driftwood position looks a little unnatural, specially the branches at the right ... roots don't grow this way "in the air"...
