Awards and Comments

Second Place
Beautiful tank. Very well balanced with good mature growth both above and below the water. Beautifully presented.
— Karen Randall
The layout and overall composition are excellent. I really like the yellow flowers that we so rarely see in this hobby. I find the 'purple' smoke a little distracting but it's a minor niggle no doubt brought about by your lighting. I'd prefer no smoke at all.
— George Farmer
I felt the plants were placed just for photography and I do not think the plants like orchid grew in this environment. Underwater planting looks nice but this mismatch became subject of point deduction.
