Biotope Aquascape

Comments from Judges

For sure I am not the expert for Biotope Scapes...but I love to see what you do with this theme. Great !

Oliver Knott

Biotopes aren`t my speciality, but I admire the aquarists that work with this very special aquariums. For sure they are the most passionate ones ... Congratulations!

Luca Galarraga

The biotopes, maybe even more difficult than any other category. Besides the fact that all fish and plants need to be biotope correct it still needs to look good. Only the real pros manage to do that and make algea look good!

Marco Aukes

I am so thrilled with the quality of many of the biotope tanks this year. Many entrants have really taken this genera to heart and are producing very accurate as well as beautiful tanks.

Karen Randall

Again, some very well done biotopes, which made my job that much harder! Kudos to all!

You will probably notice that a number of tanks were disqualified in the Biotope and Dutch style categories. These tanks were pre-judged by a panel of experts and it was determined that these aquascapes did not meet the criteria set forth in the rules of the contest. The contest committee dislikes disqualifying any tank from the contest. However, given the number of tanks and the clearly stated rules, we felt compelled to take these routes. If there are questions regarding the reasons for disqualifying the tanks, please feel free to contact one of our judges or members of our contest committee.
