Awards and Judge Comments

Nice mound scape. Some of the wood ends looked sawed off from the picture, which makes them look a bit unnatural. I think you could have done a little bit more detail work in the selection and placement of the rocks in the mound, but overall it's a very pleasing aquascape.

Kris Weinhold

Good use of your hardscape material to build the aquascape and the mid ground plants complement the layout nicely. The large round stone in the front left of the tank doesn't blend with the rest of the hardscape and the three parts of the driftwood that stick up vertically clash with the rest of the well placed driftwood. Nice tank.
