Awards and Judge Comments

Very nice selection of plants, even though you used a lot of species, you managed to mix them together in a natural way. The mound on the left is particularly strong.

Kris Weinhold

Nice job of in laying out your wood and rocks in this aquascape. Your use of the Eleocharis in the background is a good choice to frame out the background. The placement of the wood on the right side isn't optimal and doesn't flow with the aquascape and the Eleocharis needs to be thinned out a bit so as to not over power the right of the tank. Placing a bunch of stem plants in front of the Eleocharis will soften the right. Nice tank!
