First Place
This tank looks simple but is done so beautifully. The quality of the rockwork and the plant growth is just stunning.
— Karen Randall
The work with Riccia is amazing and probably a nightmare to maintain! About the hardscape in my opinion the left side stones near the left side glass could be better worked as the reflected image create a negative effect but beside that a piece of art congratulations!
— Luca Galarraga
The Riccia is trimmed well good separation with the stones.

Amazing hardscape. The entire landscape has me looking for the cattle. The large amount of dark stone on the left with the drop off in the foreground almost becomes a focal point. What an amazing job trimming the riccia! On the one hand the look is incredible and yet it is quite worrisome how one can maintain this any length of time since it is entirely riccia.
— Drinda Jacobson
Mama mia! Amazing how you creat a classical Riccia layout into a masterpiece.
— Oliver Knott
