Awards and Judge Comments

The rockwork and Riccia patches are very cool in this aquascape. Unfortunately, some of the plant selection and trimming is not as good, as the Ludwigia is too large, even though it's a beautiful plant.

Kris Weinhold

Good start to creating a Dutch like look. The individual bunches of stem plants need to be pruned to create "streets or lanes" as is seen in true Dutch tanks. The Barclaya is a nice plant for the tank, but needs to be moved to a more strategic location
