Awards and Comments

First Place
Nice attempt. I like sloping aquascapes but in this case the slope is just a little too straight and unnatural. I like your selection of animals however. And whether it is happenstance or by design I very much like the soft coat of algae on the rocks.
— Karen Randall
Beautiful flowing slope! The general angle seems too straight and man-made but the front to back growth is very nice. This is one of those aquascapes where red plants aren't entirely appropriate given the choices of species. The thin Ludwigia detracts rather than enhances the design. Good choice of fish and invertibrates.
— Phil Edwards
Catchy title for a hill on the left. Impressive crafting of the plants to form the "hill".
— Ricky Cain
It is a triangular shape composition.
But the use of rocks is not effective enough.
— Takashi Amano
