#5: 980L Aquatic Garden The Anubias Tank

Peter Nyman Linköping, Sweden


A well done very large mound layout with great use of the common Echinodorus bleheri (first time I've seen it used well) as an accent. The flowing groupings of Anubias nana are quite striking and beautiful. Unfortunately I feel that the bunches of Cabomba furcata placed in the foreground and the Hemianthus callitrichoides at the water's surface detract rathr than adds to the overall impression.

Very beautiful very large tank. This was obviously a long-term effort. I'd like it even a little more if it didn't fall off quite so sharply on the far left.
