Additional Information
This aquascape, established January 1998, is based on a Zen layout with three clusters of petrified wood. The plants are in a natural U-shaped design, and some plants are hidden from view such as the java moss which covers the petrified wood under the Bolbitis. Red Ramshorns are in abundance, but only one shrimp remains from initial stocking. Use of the Aquaterra undergravel heater is discontinued during summertime.
