Awards and Judge Comments

It is a little stylized for a biotope, but not incorrect.

Karen Randall

This is a pretty tank and looks like a good home for the fish. The contrived looking hardscape and presence of filter hardware takes away from the feeling of being a biotope.

Phil Edwards

Nice biotope for the brichardi and Julidochromis. In studying the biotope of this fish, the stone used is not a true representation of the round stones found in the lake.
