Name: Pavel Bautin
Aquarium Tank: W150×D50×H60（cm）
Hemiantus caritrichoides ”Cuba”
Fish & Invertebrates:
This year’s grand prize winner is from Russia with an innovative image of forest. 4 juries selected this layout as the best layout. The creator combined many different size straight woods, and expressed a perspective of the forest in a 150cm width aquarium. Myriophyllums planted in the back were closing their leaves due to the nyctinasty movement, as the picture might be taken during the evening, but this worked positive in this case and looked like needle leaf trees. It is regrettable not finding any fish inside, but the nature of forest was skillfully created and the creator’s idea was highly evaluated.
