Third Place
This is one of my favorite styles of aquascaping. The algae covered wood and creeping fore and midground plants invoke the feeling of an ancient forest. Great placement of the wood! I like the use of algae on the wood vs. moss or riccia although I'm concerned for the long term impact it will have. The tank's a bit young in the photo but I bet the aquarium is stunning now a few months after the submission date.

The mood set by this layout exudes tranquility and the driftwood arrangement is dramatic. The use of Cladophora on the wood adds a very natural effect. Well done!

Eyecatching and unusual aquascape. It certainly has a night-time almost "creepy" atmosphere about it. I like your use of Cladophora.
— Karen Randall
Driftwood arrangement and plants in the foreground was excellent. The moss on the driftwood was good?!
