Awards and Judge Comments

Good growth, but the plants could use a good trimming. Also, if you want an open foreground, try using the more attractive sands that have small granule sizes than Amazonia.

Kris Weinhold

Planting in groups will allow you to define spaces better and it will give a better appeal to your tank.

Luis Navarro

Nice healthy little tank. The Rotala and other plants could stand to be trimmed and shaped to fill in the sections on the right and left. Some additional hardscaping material could be used to "soften" the foreground and provide depth.

Bailin Shaw

Your plants are nice and green, but it looks like there is some algae going on in the front (or maybe it is just a fuzzy picture). The hardscape is a little haphazard.
