Awards and Judge Comments

The fish and water color are right, you were correct to leave out plants. However, the driftwood arrangement is not natural looking.

Karen Randall

While technically a biotope in the sense that the fish could potentially be found together in the wild, the hardscape arrangement follows traditional aquascaping techniques rather than giving a more natural impression. It is still a well done tank and ranked fairly highly with me.
