Overall a very high standard of aquascaping. Iwagumi is understanably very popular and there are some excellent examples. Driftwood dominated layouts feature well too. I'm very impressed by some of the stem plant pruning techniques. Inspiring stuff! Well done to all entrants.

Many inspiring tanks and some nice tries at innovative designs and features. Not all worked equally well but kudos for being brave enough to try!

Aquascapers are good people. Look at the delightful moments of viewing pleasure they have provided us here. Which is more beautiful...a rose in full bloom or the Statue of Liberty? A still life of swirling energy (entry #177) or a far off mountain range (#185)..or a cave hidden against a hillside(#149). So! You thought this judging job was easy. All of the entries make us proud.
