#65: 76L Biotope/Natural Aquaria Colored Pencils

Phil Edwards Charlotte, United States


Very convincingly done. As with the brackish tank I wonder how easy it will be to maintain.

Interesting tank. I like the flooded root effect mimicing the Amazon biotope. Although Mayaca fluvitalis is indigenous to the Amazon a better choice of plants would have improved the tank. Small swords would add more depth to the tank. Nice layout otherwise.
