Awards and Judge Comments

You did a very nice job trimming the three different mounds of plants in this aquascape. For me, the wood is too bare, and thus stands out way too much, rather than feeling part of the mound.

Your trimming technique is excellent, and the plant choices are nice. But the tank is a little too evenly divided for my taste. If the division between the sections was a little softer, I think it would be even better!

Very unique conceptualization of islands in an aquascape. I love the contrast of colors and textures from the plants and vibrant appearance of the aquascape. A couple of minor suggestions... Some of the driftwood on the right and middle distracts from the aquascape and need to moved or removed. Also, the height and size of each mound to the sides are too uniform and should be altered to provide more depth. Great job.
