#18: 27L Aquatic Garden

Rony Suzuki Londrina, Brazil


This looks like a bright green paradise for your fish. They must love living here. As a human observer though I find the largely vertial midground plants distracting and concealing. It's hard to see the background species through the veil of the midground. Selective trimming or replanting farther back will give this aquascape a better balance front to back. The Eleocharis foreground is splendid though. That can be a difficult plant to work with in achieving such a lush area the aquarist should be proud of it.

Another healthy attractive if slightly "over stuffed" tank. I'm sure it gives its owner hours of pleasure.

I felt the impression of a thick forest. Foreground plants are nicely arranged. Stones should be used more. Too many tall plants!
