Awards and Comments

Third Place
Pearl weed in such great unruly mounds with the pennywort climbing over is real nice. How come it doesn’t get all rooty on you and float away?
— Jeff Kropp
A very nice and healthy looking environment. I think the tank could use one or several plants with larger leaves creating (a) point(s) of focus.
— Wim van Drongelen
Luxurieus growth.
Create a tunnelview to background to give impression of greater depth.
Turqoise rainbows need a somewhat different water quality than the plants.
Good illumination!
— Pim Wilhelm
This healthy tank is somewhat overgrown. On the other hand because of the lacey texture of the plants it manages to avoid the shaggy "jungle" look.
— Karen Randall
