Awards and Comments

Second Place
Lovely mountain scape with beautiful rock work and great planting. I love the touch of red from the Rotala.
— Karen Randall
The really like this aquascape. That said, I find the pearling Riccia to be very distracting, almost like it was just recently floating, and planted right before the photo. The rock on the right side also is a bit too high, and visually conflicts with the water surface reflections. These are really nit-picky things, however, as I'm otherwise very impressed by this aquascape.

No much to say to you my friend other than add 15 more fish.
I really enjoy your work.
— Luis Navarro
Very impressive use of rockwork to create the aquascape. The pearling of the riccia gives the impression of a waterfall, which I think is the effect your were going for. I'd like to have seen more of the Rotala used in the back to create an added contrast in the tank. Congrats on a well done tank!
