Awards and Comments

Honorable Mention
I think your tank might be one better appreciated in person. It is in vibrnt good health and carefully executed. Unfortunately in your photographs the variations in leaf texture and color are just too subtle to have a srong visual impact.
— Karen Randall
Your plant selection is very unique as much as your technique is! I can only say that the composition is rather busy and the use of space it could be better.
— Luis Navarro
This is indeed a "Green Reef". I am particularly impressed by the green cushions of Hemianthus. The freshwater seaweed seems like a Monosolenium to me?...
— Ole Pedersen
