Awards and Comments

Honorable Mention
The open space within the composition gives a good effect. A bit more colour contrast would have been ideal
— Ole
This is a great example of a tank with excellent basic structure. However it would have shown better if the stem plants in the back had been allowed to mature and fill out before the photo was taken.
— Karen
Way too much fuzzy texture. It needs other plants to balance it.
— George
Very nice layout for this tank. The java moss lends a softness that mimics some scenes in nature. I'm not a big fan of the Glosso in the front of the tank and would like to see the tank with the hairgrass completely filled in. The Hygrophila and Ludwigia filled in a bit more. Nice tank.
