Awards and Judge Comments

Third Place

A nice aquascape in general, but in this category we have to judge it as a typical Dutch Style. For that style, the focus is way too much to the right (caused by the big red group of Alternanthera) and not based on the rule of thirds. Plants look to be in good shape, but contrasts could be stronger with regards to shape and colour. Also more space between the separate plant groups would help there.

Marco Aukes

Very healthy and strong plant growth. Nice!
