Third Place
The basic design of this tank is excellent. The planting above the water is gorgeous, and the rock work in the water section is very high quality. I'd just like to have seen the plants in the water section have a little more time to fill in. Still, it is a gorgeous display!

Simple design, yet very impressive, both underwater and above. You've managed to combine two forms of wood effectively too! The Tillandsia usneoides (grey moss on the left) is quite distracting but it's a minor niggle in an otherwise excellent piece of work. Well done.
