#68: 18L Aquatic Garden Valley of swan

Bonald Yau Chan Wan, China


I love the swan idea of this layout - very original. The plantings are also well done to make the driftwood swan seem like its paddling along the small lake (sand). However fish choice is poor as the swordtails and siamese algae eater will easily outgrow this tiny aquarium.

Lovely kids tank! I'm usually not a fan of man-made fish but in this instance they are appropriate. The wood is a little "heavy" feeling for such a small tank but your planting layout is attractive and should meet your goal of a low maintenance set-up.
