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.
