#16: 76L Aquatic Garden

Sherry Quinn Chapel Hill, United States


A beautiful little aquarium I like the composition and color design in a 2D way. I think the design would benefit from a couple of open areas between the plants this would add a 3D aspect.

This is a pretty tank with a nice flow from one side of the tank to the other. It might benefit from a little more definition of the plantings along the back of the tank but I like the use of color. I had to take a little off of the viability score because of the weak look of the Mayaca and the sunken belly of the pencil fish. This is a case where leaving a photo out might have helped the presentation a little!
