Awards and Comments

Second Place
Oh I love this tank it is a perfect scenery from the nature copied into an aquarium tank. Congratulations!
— Oliver Knott
Nice layout I prefer you to use white sand rather than filter floss. Concept wise great job.
— Kam Wong
Despite artificial stuff the layout is impressive absolutely well maintained. The use of open space and deep is skillful. It really makes me believe that this fishes can fly!
— Luca Galarraga
It's no secret that I'm not a huge fan of special effects. But I also say if you're going to use them use them right. You have done an absolutely astounding job on this waterfall and stream. Only because of your most close-up photos and your notes can we see how this is done. From your main photo it really truly DOES look like a waterfall! Congratulations on a job well done! I do have to comment that although the sprigs of H. pinnatifida look very pretty right now they will quickly outgrow these placements and will look very coarse compared to the rest of the aquascape.
— Karen Randall
