Awards and Judge Comments

Nice hill scape, but it looks like the foreground hasn't quite filled in yet. Also, the stray Rotala stems in the background detract from the hill.

Kris Weinhold

Stem plants in groups make a stronger presence by themselves not so well.

Luis Navarro

A nice healthy tank for your baby fish and the title is appropriate for your aquascape. The driftwood is lost in the overgrowth of the plants and many of the plants need to be pruned and allowed to grow, especially the Riccia. This will be a very nice tank once it matures.

Bailin Shaw

The layout of the plants in this tank needs a bit more definition. Many of the plants are doing very well, but a few are not. Remove those that don't like the conditions, and replace them with something else. There are lots of other plants to choose from!
