Hey Burr congratulations and nice job!

Second in the world is a outstanding accomplishment.

You should be very, very proud!!

I hope folks understand the planning an dedication that goes into that presentation. It not only requires the ability to bring out the best in the plants, but to painstakingly arrange every last stem. Not to mention having every plant peaking at the same time, which is quite a feat.

Here's to you my friend.

Yes its a contest based on photos you submit, took these with a Samsung phone

In the Netherlands, where the real Dutch tanks reside, a team of judges come to each person's house. But that has nothing to do with this AGA contest or the IAPLC, etc.

Congrats burr740. Well deserved recognition. You've taught me, and I know many more here, quite a lot. Thanks. Cheers

Also, noticed this tank here on TPT and recognized top 10 in its category. Congrats to Nigel95, as well.

Thanks!
@Nigel95 's is one of my favorite tanks. Especially like how the cave is done. Cant imagine the wok that went into this hardscape and well everything really




*Edit: Looks like th AGA pics are no longer hotlinking (at least for me?)

Nigel's




Mine




1st place Dutch. This is a real stunner.



One thing I need to work on is having bigger, fuller groups like this. When you see them side by side its easy to know why it scored higher than mine, probably a lot higher

Amen to that. Plus I never agree with what the judges pick. If I could have any of those entries in my living room, it'd be #2 all day

I think the thing that I like best about that first place one is that they are all pretty common plants, just in excellent health and very well arranged. Always a nice reminder that you don't necessarily need the super rare plants to make a great composition.

In terms of tanks worth following though? I'd go with the fruit stands on this board any day. There's always something different going on! The subtlety of color and texture in @burr740 's tank is amazing too.
