#53: 270L Aquatic Garden Cranes Park

Andrew Ward Surbiton, United Kingdom


In spite of a kind of hodge-podge of both plant and fish species this tank makes rather a strong first impression because of the nice use of driftwood. A quick and immediate improvement would be to get rid of all the roots hanging from the Limnobium.

Very interesting arrangement. This should improve a lot with more plant growth.

What an incredible piece of driftwood! With the addition of some more Anubias this tank has a lot of potential. Some of the species of plants that are meant to act as centerpieces actually detract from the aquascaping. Also if I'm not mistaken I think the palm like plant in the back is not a true aquatic plant.
