Awards and Comments

Third Place
I really like this! The wood and rock selection and positioning is excellent and the low-maintenane planting works very well. This is one small aquascape that is very sustainable and would no doubt improve considerably as it matures. Very well done!
— George Farmer
Very pretty tank. I fear that it will be overgrown fairly quickly with this selection of plants but right now it is lovely.
— Karen Randall
This lovely aquascape has no weaknesses. The perfect balance of all the design elements makes for a very satisfying viewing experience.
Note how the hardscape compels the viewer's eye back to the soothing colors of the crypt leaves in the center.
Note how all areas of the tank including the upper region are in play and contribute to the overall impression.
The greyish rock in the background effectively extends the visual depth far beyond the 12" available.
The entrant's title is most appropriate. This scene is a quiet "moment" that takes a 2nd a 3rd and even a 4th look to truely appreciate.
