#54: 76L Paludarium

Ivo Busko Cockeysville, United States

Awards and Comments

First Place
This is a lovely little tank. The exhibitor could have improved the first impressions of the tank by making sure that the glass was sparkling clean and free of moisture at the time the photos were taken. It also would have been helpful in judging the tank if the exhibitor had included a more complete written description of the inhabitants as the photos make it difficult to assess the type and numbers of any animals in the tank.

See the comment to entry 89. Additionally: this paludarium included an excellent biotope for submersed and
emersed Cryptocorynes: a chance to get flowers.
