A typical concave composition layout from Ukraine is selected for Bronze prize. Composition of the layout materials and balance of the whole layout were highly evaluated. When watched carefully, we can also see some problems in the layout. Anubias on the right side is too big, and looks unnatural. The arrangement of cryptocoryne in the middle-ground and Vallisneria in the back look nice, but they grew too thick. The cosmetic sand in the middle looks dirty. Creator’s ability to maintain the layout for a long period was evaluated, but its technique caused degrading.
