Awards and Judge Comments

Nice use of moss on the wood to create a very lush aquascape.

Kris Weinhold

Aptly named layout. I can certainly envision the snout of the snail and its shell. Good job creating the snail. The Hydrocotyle could be developed more for the tank and the moss needs a nice pruning to "tighten" up the aquascape. Fun tank!
