#150: 363L Aquatic Garden Fallen

James Hoftiezer Moore, United States


This aquascape seems haphazard. All of the plants look healthy and seem to be growing well. The similar texture color and uniform height of the background stemplants takes away from an otherwise decent aquascape. The Echinodorus in the midground would be better placed in the rear to allow more room to grow. Also the space in the foreground gives the impression of incompleteness.
— Phil Edwards
It is a beautiful layout but the background arrangement does not look nice. Open space in the foreground should be filled with the plants.
— Takashi Amano
Pretty tank healthy and carefully tended. You need a clearer focus to your design however. While I love red plants there comes a time when more is not better. Between the red gravel red driftwood and intermingled red plants the red ceases to be an accent and is a little overwhelming. Think of red as the "flowers" in your garden.
