Second Place
Your use of structure and simple plantings is very effective. The simplicity of nature expressed by this aquascape is refreshing.
— Phil Edwards
Very interesting creative display. Great wood and I LOVE the reflections!
— Karen Randall
Breathtaking layout! The positioning/selection of the wood creates an amazing impression!! I can imagine it was very challenging to fill the substrate with plants that would fill the area but not take away from the effect of the wood.

Nicely done!
— Jason Baliban
Beautiful layout! The placement of the wood is very impressive and the tank has a floating feel to it with the way the rasboras are swimming at the top. Nicely done!
