    Looks like your going 1st and 2nd since there's two scapes there LOL. Its hard to judge the 2nd scape since there isn't a front shot, but the foreground looks great. Talk about your perfect fish, those angels on the first scape are just fantastic for the colors and openess of the tank. A little hard to see the midground area, but yeah I like it.

    LOL I spilled water on my keyboard after I read that. Thanks alot Jeff! :D

    1st Scape
    Absolutely stunning. Great plant selection, not to mention a fantastic selection of white colored angels to contrast with the darkness of the tank.

    I wish the foreground patches of Riccia (I think) weren't pressed up against the front of the glass + I think the holes in the foreground are a slight let down as well. Lastly, I think you should allow the beauty of the plants shine a little more. By that I mean, the overall aquascape is so dark that it doesn't allow us to see the colorful Potamogeton stems. I suppose the darkness is apart of the mystery of the scape, but with such healthy plants I don't they should be hidden.

    2nd Aquascape
    Lovely tank overall. I agree it's hard to offer a complete opinion without a frontal shot, however from the parts I do see it looks amazing. There's a good slope from front to back and you obviously used the vertical height of the tank very well. I think this tank might be even better than aquascape #1. You have a green thumb at getting your plants to shine at their best. Well done!
