This is No. 1 choice. Total layout design is excellent but the use of extra wide-angle lens emphasized the inclining driftwood size and it looks much larger than actual size. Plant arrangement in the foreground is carefully made but it was regrettable the background plants were a bit rough. As a whole I think it is an interesting layout. — Takashi Amano

This is a really lovely tank beautifully conceived and executed. I love the very natural looking use of different sized gravel. The only thing I don't like is the shape of the Rotala on the left side of the tank. Hopefully with time you can trim this into a more natural graceful shape.
— Karen Randall


Incredible use of rocks and wood to form the backbone of a superb overall composition. The complex but natural-looking textures from the bare substrate to the rocks wood and planting are brilliantly executed. In fact it's the best use of hardscape I've ever seen. The planting is almost secondary in this aquascape but this does nothing to detract from the layout as a whole. It's perfectly balanced in every sense. Truly great work in all aspects. Congratulations!
