Awards and Judge Comments

A firm rule within the NBAT guidelines is 1 species of plant for each 10cm of tank width and no duplication of the same species in another group. This tank shows why; because even though it looks nice, there really are to many species of plants. As a total contrast the foreground is just one species here, something which is not advised in a Dutch style neither.
