Second Place

Stunning plant health in an aquarium that represents a more modern touch to Dutch Style. Contrasts are there in almost every way; colours, height and leaf structures. On the right I would have liked a bit more contrast in the many green species of plants there. On the left, the lotus is powerful. maybe even a bit too powerful.

Marco Aukes

Very nice job on creating this colorful and vibrant Dutch aquascape. With a bit more maturation of some plants and selective pruning of several groups, this will be a stunning Dutch layout.

Bailin Shaw

This is a truly healthy colorful aquatic plants collection. It can awaken emotions for any viewer always.
