Awards and Comments

The planting is well done in this scape but the scape overall appears to be lacking some clear directionality.
— Kris Weinhold
Nice structure and a perfect use of plants. This tank goes far away from classic NA but has the same esence. I really like this work!!!
— Juan Puchades
This layout would be more interesting if the hardscape were more visible. The stem plants were very well used and were in great shape on the left side while those on the right side could be in better moment although very healthy. I see no need in the bush of red plants in the center of the layout they cause more distraction than harmony. The plants that were used on the trunks (Riccardia) were used in excess and too high giving an artificial aspect to the assembly. This layout had everything to be a great Nature Aquarium but it became a beautiful colorful arrangement.

The composition of the driftwood placed boldly at an angle is very impressive! Very unique & outstanding! Plantation of plants is very natural and beautiful. Direction of schooling fish and colors add a good impression. Well done!
