Third Place
Impressive use of hardscape in the design of your Wabi-Kusa. You had a nice variety of stem plants although some of it doesn't look quite filled in yet. I would have liked to have seen a focal point of red incorporated into the aquascape. Great job!

I like the mix of textures and the position of the wood in the dish. Nice mix of colors too - provides a lot of detail that makes it more interesting to see from various angles. The use of smaller and larger leaves that still remain in scale to the wood is really nicely done.

This is really exceptional. Your work with the placement of leaf shape and color as well as the hardscape is excellent. The line between your two sizes of sand is a bit contrived so be careful about that but that is a tiny nit to pick. The other thing I wish you’d been a TINY bit more careful about is the bit of dirt below the sand on the righthand edge. It’s not a big deal except that everything else is so clean and perfect!
