#85: 325L Aquatic Garden

Bongy Tang Richmond, Canada


I like the big bowed piece of driftwood in this tank. But the planting is a little scattered without a lot of "planning". The brown discus are gorgeous but as I mention in another comment I personally find the orange varieties of discua a little "jarring" to the eye. Still this is a lovely tank!
