#22: 567L Paludarium Mudskipper Heaven

David Lass Nahant, United States


This looks like a great home for your mud skippers and I'm sure it is fun to watch. But it needs a little sprucing up for an aquascape contest. Lose the plastic frogs hide the wooden blocks behind the tank and clean up the glass before photographing and it will present a much nicer picture!

Interesting tank with some neat inhabitants. I like the mudskippers. The plants look like they could use a little more light and some of your selections aren't really aquatic plants like they're being used. Although picky I'm not a fan of the filmed over glass and the branchy driftwood would look better not being chopped off.
