#61: 500L Aquatic Garden

Joseph Nazari Jakarta Bara, Indonesia


This is certainly an interesting tank! I assume that the "stone" block in the corner hides the tank's life support equipment. It is always best if this equipment can be hidden but this big block is also a little jarring to the eye. The plants are in beautiful health but appear a little too much like a trimmed hedge rather than a flowing aquascape. This is another tank that might have benefitted from a little more time to grow out after its last trimming!
