Awards and Comments

Honorable Mention
This aquarist clearly put a great deal of effort into this design. However it is a little stark for my tastes and could be improved with some tasteful rockwork. It is well designed in terms of longevity though. The plants used should make it fairly straightforward to keep the same "feeling" for a long time!

Incredibly unique and vibrant tank! You should be commended on keeping the "hill" in place without it disintegrating as is the case with most mounds. The plants all look incredibly healthy and the driftwood covered with the narrow leaf java fern mimics a tree. Very nice!
