#11: 28L Aquatic Garden Drummer garden

Marcio Soares Rio de Janeiro, Brazil


This is a good low maintenance aquarium that must bring the aquarist a great deal of joy to watch. The dependance on thin bladed rosette plants and the sparse growth in the left foreground take away from the composition. Adding two or three different colored and/or shaped leaf types would enhance the aquascape greatly.
— Phil Edwards
Pretty tank but a little more variation in leaf form color and/or texture would be nice. The same is true with the fish.
— Karen Randall
The height of background plants is uniform. The backside corner should be covered with plants.
