Aquatic Experience: Nano Contest Entry

982 3
Hi Everyone,

I wanted to share with you my contest entry nano aquascape for the "Aquascaping Live" contest sanctioned by the Aquatic Gardener's Association at the 2015, Aquatic Experience that was hosted in Chicago, IL last weekend. If you have not yet attended the Aquatic Experience, I would highly recommend it. There are multiple competitions to partake in, great displays and vendors of products not otherwise readily available, and opportunities to meet and converse with some of the most experienced and talented aquascapers.

The Photo Was taken the day after setup and Planting.The aquascape did not place, and this year, the judges chose not to give out comments for the small tank category, so please leave me your criticisms. I am new to the art, and I'm always looking to improve. Please enjoy!

I like it! I'm surprised it didn't place. My biggest comment is that the background is a bit distracting regular white would have been better. The only other thing I could say is that the hard scape doesn't use the whole height. I like the pebbles in the front and the sand foreground.
