#91: 189L Aquatic Garden Harlequin Romance

Joel Baloro Vancouver, Canada


This aquascape has a good foundation but could use some contrast in color. The two sided aquascape with the large plain in the middle is a nice effect. The Crypts in the middle disrupt the line. Transplanting them directly in front of the Cyperus would help both smooth the lines of the aquascape and give more visual interest to the right grouping.
— Phil Edwards
Pretty tank but the design is a little weak. See if you can work with those stem plants and create a better background.
— Karen Randall
The space in the middle is good but background space should be filled with tall stemmed plants.
— Takashi Amano
