Awards and Judge Comments

Good layout, can't differentiate the focus as both the sides look similar due to the reflection at the side. Left side aquascape looks more scaled than right which looks crowded.

Inderjeet Singh Bansal

Very nice and well maintained aquarium. The "dark hole" at the right side could be filled with a stone to achieve a better result. Another point of attention is the images reflected in the lateral glasses, specially the right side can be better solved.

Luca Galarraga

Nice interest. Good balance. The Hemianthus micranthemoides will be a maintenance issue over the long term. Too many fish to maintain on any long term basis.

Drinda Jacobson

Very nice layout in this special kind of tank shape.

Oliver Knott

I really like the aquascape in this tank. However the fish choice is not the best. There are too many, and the Crossocheilus will get too large. The cherry barbs are not showing good color either. I can't tell from the photo whether this is because they are feeling stressed by the lack of cover, or if the sex ratios are wrong and preventing the males from coloring up. Please see entry #268 in this category for an example of the color that healthy, non-stressed male cherry barbs should have.
