Awards and Judge Comments

Second Place

Nice and well maintained aquascape. If the three foreground plants would differ a bit more in height as well, it could look better.

Marco Aukes

Another nice tank which clearly attempts the Dutch style, but falls short. The groupings are very regimented, and starkly divided between front and back.
