#42: 76L Aquatic Garden Dabba Java

Rod Stewart Bedford, Canada


Nice healthy "beginner" type tank. The water sprite looks like an afterthought however and will quickly swamp the other plants.

This aquarium reminds me of my very first planted aquarium. It's hard to go wrong with the species of fish and plants chosen for this aquarium and it looks as though this one is no exception. The brightness of the Watersprite looks out of place and draws the eye more to the front of the tank than the back. Using it as a background plant or as a floater might help.

Composition is too rough.
