Awards and Comments

First Place
One of the high potential entries in this category. Very nicely grouped plants all in good health and very good use of contrasts. One of the few as well that makes full use of the height of the tank. However the pinnatifada/lotus combination is not the best. Together with the rotala it brings too much red/orange to the right side. Than again that is really searching for reasons to deduct point as in general it is well done.

Another strong aquascape. The contrasts in color texture and height are very good. The groupings and placement of reds draw my eye around the aquascape naturally. The visible lower portion of the Didiplis spraybar connection and slightly too-tall Lobelia detract from the overall impression.
— Phil Edwards
Really lovely Dutch tank! I would perhaps prefer that the pinnatifida not be placed behind the Nymphaea as it draws the eye to heavily out the corner of the tank.
