What did it come in at?
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..
Just started next years this afternoon, and using dragon stone for the 1st time
Hi All,Congrats To All Looking forward to seeing them

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

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:
chopped the middle out:
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...

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.
