DISQUALIFIED

DISQUALIFY

Phil Edwards

It sometimes is even heartbreaking to DQ a tank. Just look at those vibrant colors in this tank. But just one smooth shape in the entire layout surely DQ's the tank in this category. All the plants imply stop at just over half of the tank. Dutch style makes use of the entire tank and with strog variaitions in heights.
