Awards and Comments

First Place
What a beautiful fiery little scape with loads of lush plants but still wonderful hardscape. If I could change one thing it would be the log in front with the MC on it. It is so large that it overpowers the rather delicate work elsewhere.
— Karen Randall
A work with a strong impression to me. Maybe the work could be improved a bit more with a little bit more boldness in the wood work on the left side. Beautiful balance of colors. Congratulations beautiful!
— Nigel Hoevenaar
What a beautiful example of a Brazilian style aquarium.
Multicolored with dense well-positioned bushes and excellent pruning work.
There is coherence in the two main trunks I only question the need for the trunk closest to the substrate in the middle of the aquarium covered in "Monte Carlo".
The side reflections were well designed and the health of the plants is good.
However I would be more careful not to use cosmetic gravel too close to the day of the photo. They look too clean giving the impression of artificiality. And likewise I wouldn't stick the tips of Staurogyne just for the photo.
But despite that it's an excellent aquarium with nothing different or new but very well assembled!!
— Andre Longarco
An intensely beautiful piece! The skill demonstrated in the arrangement of aquatic plants by utilizing their colors is at an exceptional level likely to inspire many aquascapers. I'm personally inspired and keen to replicate it. Despite being in a small-sized tank it presents an impressively large scale showcasing a high level of aquatic plant maintenance ability. Thank you for this wonderful piece and congratulations!
