#146: 650L Aquatic Garden Java Jungle

Nicholas Chung Singapore, Singapore


Beautiful Crypt dominated aquarium! They can be a hard genus to work with when used as the main type of plant in an aquascape good job. The healthy large stands of plants indicates to me that the aquarist also takes good care to maintain a healthy and stable environment which deserves notice.

Cryptocoryne and ferns were used very effectively. Left side background was weak. Microsorum sp. is too big.

Your tank is attractive and well-grown. I like the way your "moss wall" sets off the plants in front of it. It is too bad that at the time you took your pictures the water appears to have been a bit cloudy. The algae between the glass and the gravel is also unappealing and detracts from the presentation
