#52: 98L Aquatic Garden

Donald Duterte Hayward, United States


The exhibitor has clearly put some time and effort into the aquascaping of this tank. While it is a very pretty tank as is the layout could be improved by placing the "valley" to either side of center and by balancing the bright red of the Alternanthera with some other red plants on the other side of the "valley". The "sunset" Hygro just isn't quite bright enough to do the trick.
