Awards and Judge Comments

Second Place

Stunning piece of work, caught in it's prime. Excellent job!

Karen Randall

Excellent layout that is presented superbly! The rockwork is well-balanced and the plant choice maintains some originality from other 'traditional' Iwagumi aquascapes. Very well done!

George Farmer

Very interesting geometric design of narrow and slender aquatic plants (Eleocharis Vivipara?). If the length of Ludwigia was taller than this, the aquascape would become much more exciting. The layout needs more aquatic plants.

Takashi Amano

A study in grace and power. Aquascape as Art. The center stone proudly thrusts into that gracefully arched void and dares the viewer's eye to look elsewhere. The minimally used plant groups and hardscape are artfully in balance.
