Conceptually it is a great aquarium.
I wonder how many people have tried unsuccessfully to reproduce a scenario like this?
But as it is a contest layout only this innovation is not enough to reach top ranking.
But anyway it caught my attention a lot and I guarantee that we will have a great job next year again. Keep working!!!

Very innovative looking scape and something different from most of the rest of the scapes in this contest.

This aquarium gives me very different sensations. In the first place the presence of that scavenger quickly caught my attention. Although it is well designed the possibility of observing something like this in nature is difficult for me. When analyzing this aquarium in detail I think the planting needs a greater integration between species everything is too limited. On the other hand the fish cannot be a point of attention and accompany the initial concept. This aquarium needs an extra effort in its execution to be a true success.

Additional Information The title of this work is "black hole". The line of rocks and river is used to bring the sight to the abyss of the cave. The angle of overlooking the abyss brings out the depth of the aquascape. The sky, rocks, plants, and cave are closely combined to outline the charming and natural landscape. With the small leaf surface and dense planting, the atmosphere of the great scenery is drawn. The creature chooses “Nematobrycon palmeri var” that is completely integrated without any conflict. In addition to completely matching the color of the aquascape, its adds a mysterious atmosphere.
