First Place
You know I had a VERY hard time finding anything to complain about with this aquascape even though there isn't a plant in it!<g> Just because I can't help myself I'll say that it could be improved ever so slightly by a slightly less regular placement of the "roots" coming down from the top of the tank. I haven't taken anything off for viability but I do wonder how easy it will be to maintain this display in this condition! I think this is far and away the best tank we've had in the biotope division to date!

Very impressive overall and very original. I think more careful arranging of the rockwork would improve it some.
— George
Excellent representation of a brackish fish tank. The placement of the rocks and root system is very similar to a mangrove swamp. All of the fish look at home in this setup.
