Gregory Thom e Silva São Paulo, Brazil

Awards and Comments

Second Place
Awesome work with a very natural feeling. Hard to achieve in small aquariums.
One little mistake: Red Rotala in the foreground was planted recently just for the final shot. This plant doesn't grow with this color so low ...
Congratulations in my TOP5!
