#23: 680L Aquatic Garden

Letty Lewin West Allis, United States


While this is a lovely tank no tank looks its best with the water line exposed like this. The aquascape would look much more polished with the tank filled to the top trim. I don't care for the effect of the two different colors of gravel but I do like the big tree stump very much!

Additional Information The tank has been up for four years. I use no CO2,
no extra fertalizer, and do 50% water changes
weekly. Originally, when I set the tank up, I used
Tetra Inital Sticks for fertalization. Now it's all

I chose the low-voltage halogen for the clean
line effect it gives, the natural shadows, and
you can see the rippling of the water unlike
fluorescent. Low-voltage halogen is also less expensive to
purchase and run.
