#29: 36L Aquatic Garden Back Home

Yoki Wong Shaukeiwan, Hong Kong, China


I like the established feel of this aquarium. The darker shades of the foliage and the textured background give this aquascape a feeling of age and naturalness which the pebbles in front enhance. However I feel this aquascape could have been accomplished with more appropriate species of plants. A couple species on the list get too large for a tank of this size.

This tank has a nice settled grown-in look. It is not as "manicured" as some of the others but I think that is partly because it has been established for longer than some. There are some plants that will grow too large and need to be removed but the Anubias stand will carry it through these periods.

Use of Cryptocoryne and small leaf plants is good. But the stone was too big.
