Nice tanks every one of them. Some of my personal constructive criticism. Tank 8 and 9....hide the heaters and other equipment. Tank 7.....More natural rocks for fish to hide in and around. Tank 6 is nice, but I would hide the openings to the flower post by adding rocks around them. It is a natural looking tank, but IMO the clay pots detract from the "natural" appearance. Please take no offense, there is none intended, the comments are just my personal opinion. Some people like tanks with neon pink and blue gravel with sunken ships or skulls in them. I do not, I like a natural aquascape. But what's important is that the owner like it.

Natural aquascapes are the best IMO. Can't wait till I get my nano tank set up. Gonna plant it and put a pair of rams in it. Maybe even enter in this comp. I personally think tank six has a nice aquascape, but the picture is at the wrong angle.

I really like tank 8, but the heater is a visual distraction for me. Maybe it could be placed differently? Tank 1 is very artistic. Tank 2 makes me dream of scuba diving on a reef. All the tanks are lovely.Neat contest!

awhile back i kinda hollered at folks telling them to take lots of pics and start entering these contests...and that with practice they would constantly improve with their abilities...
i was right...the tanks and pics have been continuously getting better and better.....
outstanding work everybody....

I'm going to be buying a bunch of plants tonight at my club meet. I am hoping to do a planted tank.

My tank, when done, still can't even compete with these. I cant aquascape. Period. But, very nice nice tanks in all guys.

Hey Vay give it time! You will learn how to aquascape, and even when you just toss a bunch of natural things together in a tank it can look really good!

vayu ; i am about as artistic as a broken brick...but i am fortunate because i enjoy nature so much ; i just think how something looks in nature...the colors are easy..darker browns for the substrate and pieces of driftwood..the green of the plants..the grays and browns of rocks....nothing is precisely placed they just are just randomly there..
so when you do your tank , let mother nature guide you...
