Awards and Judge Comments

The moss looks really nice, but the Sagittaria is too big of a plant for this sized aquarium.

Kris Weinhold

You have a nice healthy tank with some thriving plants. The plants could use some pruning and shaping, in particular the riccia and the Sagittaria should be replaced by a smaller more delicate foreground grassy plant. Great job on the tank!

Bailin Shaw

Lovely little desk top tank. The Sag, as a foreground plant, is a bit overpowering in a tank of this size. Try trimming your stem plants a bit more often so that they branch and become fuller.
