Awards and Comments

Second Place
Good choices for submersed vegitation and mosses for the rocks. It appears the designer has given some thought into giving the emersed plants' roots some room to drain. Most of the emersed plants will very easily outgrow the 29g container though.
Everything looks newly planted in the photo. The design is pleasing but would have benefitted from more time given for it to grow in.
— Phil Edwards
This layout looks very neat. The use of the stone was very effective. The plants should have been planted in groups. The substrate was spread neatly.
— Takashi Amano
Lovely layout good healthy growth and a nice balance between the emersed and submersed sections of the display.
— Karen Randall
