Awards and Comments

Third Place
This is a well-photographed eye-catching aquarium
with a simple composition. The wood and plants are
well suited for this tank. I think that while this
style is eye-catching it does not offer as much
long-term visual interest as more complex
aquascapes. (That detail didn't enter into my
scoring of the entry.)
— Roger Miller
Vigorous growth of riccia lawn. Add more driftwood
covered with javafern create some small riccia
hills. Scape is too firm artificial look!
— Detlef Hupfeld
A striking presentation. The wood and java fern stand out beautifully from the riccia like small islands in the middle of the sea.
