#125: 38L Aquatic Garden

Sarah Wolfe Lansing, United States


Good use of a Nano Cube. I like the aquarists use of common species but the aquarium seems immature yet. A few more months of growth would increase the strength of the design. Care should be taken to keep the moss short to avoid overpowering the foreground and blocking out the background. Also use of a smaller foreground species such as Glossostigma or Marsilea between the bunches of Saggitaria in the foreground will help give a stronger feeling of depth.

Nice little tank clean and well-maintained. The Nymphaea will get too big but at least it is in a position where it can be easily removed when the time comes.

The composition is good but the curved front glass made the layout distorted. Nymphaea grows too big and is not suitable for the small aquarium.
