Awards and Comments

Third Place
Calm looking aquascaping. Would score even higher with stronger plant groups. Not all plants are named and numbered.
— Marco Aukes
Pretty nice flow but too much reliance on red (and reddish) plants and a LOT of species. Consider replacing these with some larger flowy groupings of contrasting green plants.
— Karen Randall
