#7: 980L Aquatic Garden The Big Garden

Peter Nyman Linkoping, Sweden


This is another tank that looks like it is struggling just a bit for light. Big deep tanks can be challenging to light but moving to power compacts should allow you to upgrade quite nicely. Alternatively allow the aquascape to move more in the direction of the low light plants like Anubias and Java ferns.

I like the driftwood in this tank although I think moving it toward the center would have given it great impact. Also the plants on the left side could be pruned to allow the plants to triangulate towards the center and either the Hygrophila or Cabomba could be moved to the back-right corner to give the aquascape more depth. Please remove the equipment when taking pictures.
