Awards and Comments

Honorable Mention
Pretty tank. While some areas without plants can add to an aquascape I think in this case you've left too large an area bare.
— Karen Randall
Fore ground needs more plants Good use of moss on the wood.
— Inderjeet Singh Bansal
Good tank balance. The hardscape if great. The weeping moss on the driftwood is very effective. The Hygro pinnatifida is a disconnect with the rest of the scape. It's to harsh for the rest of the flora. The scape lacks a definitive focal point so that the aforementioned Hygro becomes the focal point.
— Drinda Jacobson
Thats really cool...I love the moos coming down from the roots. Very impressive.
— Oliver Knott
