    hugely surprised...I thought your effort was a work of art, perhaps they did not fully get the strangling fig vibe, we get a similar fig species here so appreciated the great replica..

    Once again a reproduction of a terrestrial landscape wins the contest. It is certainly stunning but not for me, I prefer aquatic ones...

    The aplc in Iaplc stands for aquatic plant layout contest not 95% rock layout, the layout is clever yes but keeping the plants in that scape is a monkey job.

    It's still a very impressive layout. I can see why it won compared to the others. It's definitely unique and has a high degree of perspective and size; it looks much larger than it actually is. However, my eyebrow is raised about it considered being "aquatic" and a "habitat for fish".

    My biggest surprise was No. 14. I don't understand why it ranked so high. And it won the special jury prize. I just don't get it. Look out for it.

    NA Part was terrific, the streaming yesterday worked perfect for me.

    I'd like to say a big thank you to Mr V Lantos! Like a lot of people, I think you scapes are brilliant. I came across one and used it as inspiration for this:

    This is the V Lantos tank that caught my eye:

    It is a very good and original idea. Well executed. It does however contradict the grading criteria in IAPLC, especially the new ones.
    It is only normal for a business contest to pass the top score to the top WOW front picture.
    I wonder if IAPLC will ever consider what the contest aquariums look like in reality, for it seems all they care about is a collection of a cool front shots.
    I am yet to see any scape with the large hardscape elements on the very front to look good for e real live view.

    Any way. Congrats to all of us, the winners...:)

    link to the top 27.......... http://peha68.pl/iaplc-2014-top-27/

    when you look at Piotr Dymowski #45 above is pure class the detail is amazing.

    Number 14 is a nice, however who in their right mind thought it was better than Piotr Dymowski #45.

    Some may will criticize the minimalism and the fake background, but you can't be a winner til you came up with something new.
