Second Place

Very colorful and natural layout. The reflections and shadows are perfect and the movement of the hardscape invites us to walk through the layout. I also liked the Ramirezis. The bushes in the back of the black stone in the front/right could be trimmed more naturally. But anyway, a great Nature Aquarium layout.

Beautifully crafted, great plant growth... Well done!

One of the best uses of color in this contest. The health and vibrancy of the plants is exceptional and the most captivating aspect of this well executed aquascape. The impression of a shallow flowing river painted with plants and fish is achieved nicely.
