First Place
This is a carefully designed tank and beautifully cared for. I like most of the layout until we get to the inside of the "donut hole" At that point the rock work is fairly nice but the use of Eleocharis here just doesn't work for me. Perhaps if the Eleocharis were echoed in another place in the layout or replaced with an entirely different plant - perhaps something with pink or bronze tones with a softer shape - it would work better.

Your layout is really good! The way you used the spaces your technique to work arround the rocks and the trimming is excellent! the rigth side seems to be too dark any other than taht good job!
— Luis Navarro
Very creative and well designed work. Nice choice of rocks. However the eleocharis is a draw back. The entire layout would be more complete if the eleocharis were replaced with moss you have in your tank. The tank also lacks feeling of natrualness.
— George Lo
BINGO! This is really a great layout with steep slopes and lots of open space surrounding the central eye-catching plateau. I really like this tank!
