Awards and Comments

First Place
A nice corner composition that seems just a little bit out of control. I wonder if darker stones might give this aquascape a little more contrast.
— Roger Miller
I was pleased to see this very small tank! Nice growth of plants but lotus may become too big soon. Move stone on left side slightly backwards and hide equipment.
— Detlef Hupfeld
An impressive planted tank considering the very tight space. The Micranthemum in the corner is a little too overgrown and takes away from the composition.
— Chuck Gadd
