#3: 980L Aquatic Garden

Peter Nyman Linkoping, Sweden


One of the most common traps of aquascaping a large aquarium is underestimating the space inside the box and not planting large enough groups. All the many plants in here look like they're doing ok it's just hard to tell with so many species. Large tanks deserve to make a strong statement.

Very pretty very large open-top tank. It is hard to design an execute a cohesive aquascpe on such a large scale.
