This is a good start, but I hope to see entries in this class increase and improve in years to come. I'd like to see more of an effort to camouflage equipment in all the tanks.

I agree totally with Karen Randall's comment on this!

There were three entries in this category. Debate raged in e-mail amongst the organizers over what constituted a natural or biotope tank: Did it have to be completely 'biotopically correct' with matching fish and plants from the same lake or river? Or was it sufficient for it to be a natural 'habitat' for the fish? It is our hope that more people will take on this category next year.
