Awards and Comments

Top Five
Good aquarium everything looks natural. The natural biotopicity is well shown. It's hard to tell from the photo what's being used as soil but if it's black sand or gravel it looks inappropriate for a bog. In addition the bottom looks too clean. There is not enough organic siltation and plant residue settled on the bottom for visual balance.

Looks deeper and bigger nice work.
