#47: 775L Aquatic Garden

Steve Maier Chagrin Falls, United States


Very nice tank. You need a little more filling in at the mid-height level to hide the bottoms of some of the stem plants and the back glass. As it is you have a very large tank that has a lot of depth but ends up looking shallow from back to front.

Interesting mix of color and texture.

I like the healthy Nymphae in this tank. Beautiful colors. This tank looks like it needs to mature in some places like the foreground and also looks as though it is in a transition point of pruning and replanting as seen by the Hygrophila corymbosa (giant). Naked stems and numerous roots detract from this tank.

Additional Information This tank has matured over 1 year. During this time I have concentrated on aquascaping and grouping plants in order to maximize the imact of the colors and textures. My vision is to create the effect of an English Flower garden. The URI AquaSun bulbs contribute significantly to this effect by bringing out the reds. One note: This tank has a high flow rate. I attribute the success of the E. stellata to this.
