Awards and Comments

Third Place
Very well done aquascape. The meandering path is great. Caves seem to be all of the rage right now but I actually think the white patch detracts from the rest of the composition rather than adding to it. Some better trimming could be done particularly with H. pinnatifida but this is one of the nicer scapes in this category.

Very good forest layout. Good proportion of the driftwood plants and fish. Maybe the skyline on the left would be better if there were some bushes of stem plants or simply closed with plants. Thus the main emphasis would be to the main empty space next to the golden ratio at the end of the path. The foreground despite this well worked show some symmetry with the front glass because of the straight line of cosmetic substrate. But they are just some minimum details for a exquisite job. Congrats.
