Awards and Judge Comments

This is a bold, bright design with lovely plants and great growth. I would just have liked to see wood a little less "heavy" and rigid.

Karen Randall

The piece of drift wood in the left foreground is a bit too heavy. The forward direction it has it a bit intimidating to the viewer. The flora arrangement and it really nice and balanced. The heavy red color of the Ludwigia sp red is hard to pull off. Had there been a little red in the foreground it may have worked a little better in the scape. Only one rock is visible so it seems like it's an extra.

Drinda Jacobson

The use of plants is very skillful, but the driftwood is too straight and big for this layout.

Luca Galarraga

I love the tank dimensions and what you make with it. Great scape!
