Awards and Judge Comments

Like I said in my general comments on this category; it is not only about the right fish and decoration here. It is also about layout still. This tank does a lot right, but the scape itself has it's focus way to much on the sides.

Marco Aukes

I believe that the biotope usually has more in the way of wood for the angelfish to hide in. More randomly placed wood would have made this a much nicer biotope.
