#35: 182L Aquatic Garden Rainbow Garden

Wayne Sham Diamond Hill, HK, Hong Kong


Good use of an open foreground and pebbles they create a strong natural impression. The foreground and midground of this aquascape are strong making the background look even weaker. Increasing the height and variety of color and/or texture of the background plants would enhance the aquascape a lot. The colors of the M. boesemanii work very well in this aquarium but they will get too large for their home. Pseudomugil furcata or signifer would be good alternatives and will stick with the general Rainbowfish family.

Pretty tank that is perfect for showing off a nice school of M. boesemani. Clearly the fish are happy as they are well colored even though they are still young.

The driftwood arrangement and middle space was excellent. The height of the background plants are uniformly. More plants should be planted in the back corner.
