Awards and Comments

Third Place
This is a nice eye candy tank with the contrast and red colored flowers. It doesn't strike me as a unique Paludarium but it does the traditional form well.
— Tony Gomez
Lovely tank beautifully planted both above and below the water. Thank you for giving us a separately lighted view of the underwater section so we can judge it more easily. This isn't a photo contest but we can't judge what we can't see!
