Third Place
I have been along the Mekong river and it is a HUGE river with tremendous variations in water level. I have a hard time imagining this tranquil plant-filled bank along its edge.

I applaud your use of geographically appropriate flora and fauna in creating this attractive aquarium. It's certainly an appropriate entry for this category in that regard. The aquascaping is starting to blur the line between a natural biotope and aquatic garden. It's a gorgeous aquarium and the inhabitants look happy and healthy. You should be proud of your work.
