#47: 756L Aquatic Garden

Jeffery Senske Houston, United States


A very nice design it isn't easy to create a tank that looks nice from 4 sides.
— Wim van Drongelen
Fish species less suited for this kind of display.
(Java Moss = Vesicularia dubyana).
Discus needs to blow in the sand this is to course. Discus needs more space: horizontal plane.
Bottom sand not that high against the windows looks nicer.
From all sides you see the bare corners.
— Pim Wilhelm
This is an impressive display in a very challenging type of tank. Well done!
— Karen Randall
