#50: 900L Aquatic Garden

Kfir Alfandary Modiin, Israel


Pretty tank that could use more definition to the planting. While Eichhornia azurea is a beautiful plant it is hard to incorporate into an aquascape and it doesn't work particularly well here. Likewise the single stick of driftwood showing on the left and the single rock on the righ look out of place. Finally PLEASE remove the algae magnet from the side of your tank before photographing. That is a dead-easy piece of equipment to remove!
