#147: 845L Aquatic Garden Sunset over wild garden

Bartłomiej Lipczyński Konstancin-Jeziorna, Poland


I really like how the aquarist has used large groups of plants for this aquascape as is the use of smaller leaved plants. Both choices make an already large aquarium seem even larger. There could be a greater difference in leaf type though. From the distance of the camera it's hard to distinguish and gives a uniform look to the planting.

Using small leaf plants in a large size aquarium was very nice. Background plants were grown very well.

Pretty tank and I love the presentation with the rounded corners. However at this point it is a little over-grown. I think it would look much nicer after a good pruning and then a little grow-out time!
