Third Place
This tank suffers from the same problem as many very long tanks... It is extremely difficult to tie the entire length of the tank into a cohesive whole. The result is an aquascape that looks like two aquascapes tacked end-to-end. While the huge 'Rubin' in #35 is distracting a couple of nice big specimen plants would relieve the "sameness" of this mass of stem plants. Still my hat is off to ANYONE with the fortitude to maintain a tank of this size!

Wonderful selection of plants.

Impressive tank! This must be a difficult tank to maintain. Bringing out the Althernathera reinecki would catch the eye better and adding some color and differing leaf texture (round) to the left side would improve this tank dramtically. Nice tank!
