#69: 66L Aquatic Garden Mystery of Green

Bonald Yau Chan Wan, China


I like this small layout with its vibrantly lush plant growth and forest like atmosphere. Although there are several species of fish in this small aquarium they all seem to fit quite nicely into the general scheme. Some drawbacks are that the purple Polygonum sp. has been planted in a too centralized position and that the Mayaca and Didiplis should be shortened. One has to wonder how long that Echinodorus 'Oriental' will stay that small.

Pretty tank with a nice flow to it. However I would remove the single sprig of Polygonum or add more and move it further back. The single sprig set dead center is a bit jarring in an otherwise delicate design. Your fish collection is a bit of a jumble and includes species that have very different needs. Oh and take the equipment out for the tank before photographing!
