I found this interesting, marked down for sand?

[url:13fd6qj5]http://en.iaplc.com/about/grading.html[/url] said:
There was a debate over the use of very fine white cosmetic sand, such as Rio Negro sand. Due to the nature of this type of sand, excretions of fish and shrimps become more recognizable on white sad. The color of the sand turns more easily to a unpleasant greenish or blackish color because of the growth of algae and the spread of anaerobic bacteria inside an aquarium. It was pointed out that it's hardly kept brightly clean for a long period of time. Although the cosmetic sand used in the layout looks elegantly beautiful in the picture, the layout receives a tough evaluation from the judges.

685 out of 1342! I am very pleased with that! and quite shocked too, looking at past entries from the people on UKAPS they were getting in the 600's too :rolleyes:

The judging can be dodgy though, as pointed out above with the sand, that isnt always the case, i didnt find any waste hardly, due to good circulation ;)


Congrats to everyone else though, it seems everyone has improved ten fold :thumbup:

Well done to everyone, I was hoping to enter but didn't have anything ready. There's always next year.

A big well done to everyone.
Particularly to Andrew and Peter, who if I understand correctly will make the ADA book this year.
Also to George with a very respectable placement indeed.
Not forgetting Aaron who beat Jason Baliban by 2 places, an amazing acheivement at 15 years old

Cheers
James
