Awards and Comments

First Place
Incredible tank! A very convincing underwater slice of Lake Tanganyika.
— George Farmer
Absolutely lovely background and rock surround. Your fish are all from Lake Tanganyika and while I was not able to determine whether they would be found in the same areas certainly the TYPES of biotopes they inhabit are represented in this tank (sandy rocky littoral areas and open water) Good job.
— Karen Randall
I believe the creator tried to make a biotope of lakes where African cichlids inhabit but overhanging rocks provides oppressive feeling. A little ingenuity is required here.
— Takashi Amano
