#109: 180L Aquatic Garden Deep green grassland

Pawel Piotrowski Warszawa, Poland


Your fore and midground are quite nice but the background lets the tank down. The wisps of Val and tall Crypts don't add much interest and the mushroom cloud of E. vivipara draws te eye away from the nicer areas of the tank. The good news is that since you've handled the more difficult fore and mid ground areas of the tank it should be relatively easy to bring the background up to snuff with some carefully chosen stem plants.

Just 1 comment first the back ground because of the nature of the middle section I think it will look better if there was also 2 sections of Eleocharis spp.
