Third Place
It is a very interesting aquarium but it seems unfinished mainly on its left side. I understand that the work of composing and gluing rocks does not always make a natural sensation which is why it was imperative that the set of rocks on the left was covered with plants and mosses to hide the unnatural positioning of some rocks.
Likewise the rest of the aquarium is disproportional in relation to the occupation and positioning of the plants. In some places there are many plants even too dense and in others it seems that they forgot to plant.
I want to believe that this is a good job but whose photo was not taken at an ideal moment.

The right part of this scape is really cool with the arches being well planted and formed. Unfortunately the left overlook has very unnatural rock stacking that detracts from the overall scape.

I am really amazed by the great planting work done on this work. Maybe a non-natural structure that has become a very detailed and full of Nature feeling work. Fish selection is perfect. I love this work for me it is top2 of the category. Top1 and 2 of this category are two super high class aquascapes!!!

We could find very similar composition of rocks in past but this work is very natural and impressive more than I have seen before. I love it.
