Awards and Judge Comments

Healthy growth, but this scape is lacking in flow from the focal point forward.

Kris Weinhold

The driftwood is very thin so much more could be used to create a more natural look; only two long branches reach out and the first drops right in front of the tank.

Luis Navarro

Very unique piece of wood. The Juncus would have been better used on the left to blend the background into the wood. Some of the plants, i.e. Hemianthus could use with some trimming and pruning.

Bailin Shaw

This is quite a nice layout, but to me, the Juncus repens on the right stops thelovely flow that you have developed coming down from the left. Without this one group of plants I think it would be a stronger design.
