#94: 340L Aquatic Garden

Joel Baloro Vancouver, Canada


Lovely concave layout! The simplicity of the design gives the aquarium a tranquil feeling. Unfortunately the blocky coarse wood along with the visible water line and hazy water detract from the aquascape. Replacing the wood with a simple 3 stone arrangement reminescent of Zen rock gardens would be very appropriate for this aquascape.

It is very simple layout and lacking the accent. The middle space is good. But I think it looks better with more variety of plants.

Another tank with a nice start and well-grown healthy plants. However the aquascape lacks a clear focus. Something in the mid-ground would help. Also the stem plants need to be trimmed and allowed to grow out several times so that they can fill in better rather than growing straight up.
