Awards and Comments

Third Place
A beautiful lush colorful celebration of colors leaf size and texture. I am very impressed by this amazing large stem plant layout! The substrate however would preferably be flat in the front instead of rolling up and down.
— Carlos Sanchez
Beautiful tank! While in some cases I have commented on the use of too many red plants in this aquascape you have managed to carry it off in spite of a heavy emphasis on red. I like your driftwood placement and love the soft flowing line of the foreground planting. And you've managed to divide the tank at the right place to give us just a peek at your interesting background.

Nothing like a healthy Hemianthus foreground.
