Awards and Judge Comments

I like this lush tank, but it is a little too evenly divided in half, and looks just a tad overgrown. I suspect it was at its very best a week or two before the photos were taken.

The plants all look very healthy, but the Hydrocotyle is a bit out of control, and the scape as a whole would benefit from more negative space.

Kris Weinhold

A very beautiful aquascape with excellent usage of ferns and stem plants to define the tank. Only two minor suggestions... Try and offset one side so the tank doesn't appear uniform on both sides and the large dritwood on the left might be better tilted instead of so verticle. Great job!
