Comments of the members of the jury of Biotope Aquarium Design Contest 2016

This entry is a special in the contest. It causes interesting emotions in me. I always sit and wait when the fish appears. I do not know whether the aquarium takes some prize, but I like it very much. It is kind of Zen. I love such things. It is interesting that the description of the aquarium corresponds to the entry in terms of brevity. On my computer it takes exactly one line. Seriously, this aquarium is done very competently. This is a real biotope. Not every biotope can be like the Amazonian forest. There are also biotopes like this one. And it is very realistic. I am not sure that this entry will take some prize. But it touches me. I put it in the top ten.
