André Daniel Nóbrega Lisboa, Portugal

Awards and Comments

Honorable Mention
Good use of large groupings in this design! I particularly like the Stargrass. The aquarist has done a good job of tending it. The bright red of the A. reineckii draws the eye so strongly to it that it keeps the eye from enjoying the entire composition. One or two strong red/orange plants elsewhere in the aquascape would help give contrast and create tension to draw the viewer's attention around the entire design.
— Phil Edwards
Vibrant is a very good description for this aquarium. The different leaf textures and the mixture of plant species complement each other well.
— Ricky Cain
Very pretty tank. The siamensis however will get very large for a tank of this size and will be hard to remove when they do!
— Karen Randall
The composition looks nice but the foreground plants is not pruned well.
— Takashi Amano
