#95: 170L Aquatic Garden Java Isle

Roland Seah Singapore, Singapore


Very well done low light tank! The aquarist has done a great job using the hardscape and epiphytes to create an impression of rolling hills. The sense of depth to this aquascape is strong and is enhanced by the strong foreground. It could use some cleaning up though. The moss looks like it's starting to invade the other plantings and the E. tenellus growing right up to the glass could use some thinning.

VERY nice vibrantly healthy example of a low-light tank. Good job!
— Karen Randall
Use of ferns and Microsorum was very good. But it could be better if there are more plants in the background.
