    I agree! Seems to bring something a little different as well..

    I see we had one South African in the top 2000.. Someone named Marc......

    I was having a look at the past Grand Prize winners, and it's a testament to how the popularity of the hobby has grown and the intensity of the competition has increased - the first few winners were a little, well, amateurish..

    The use of the ghost catfish was genius!

    I thought they were looking at more natural scapes with long term sustainability, not underwater landscapes.

    It's a great scape but thought it would be something in a different direction this year.

    More impressive than the scape is how they got the fish to line up so perfectly.

    The scape is brilliant of course, but love the subtle and original use of the phantom cat shoal which are rarely seen in scapes..
