Country: HONG KONG
Aquascape Title: VERVE!

The third Bronze Prize winner is a unique layout from Hong Kong. The creator of this layout is famous for arranging driftwood uniquely, and every year he sends dramatic layout. This year the layout with boldly composition produced by driftwood in a large size aquarium is very powerful. But some arrangements of driftwood and stones got negative remarks due to the existence of driftwood with a different impression in the left side of aquarium tank, and the lack of unity in arrangement of driftwood and stones. The aquatic plants still look young, and it does not have a resonance of nature.
