#112: 90L Aquatic Garden Lost paradise

Luis Carlos Ardid Galarraga São Paulo, Brazil


This is a very pleasing design with some of the lovely newer plants on the aquarium scene. I would prefer not to see so many different mosses in the same layout however for two reasons. First I think that the layout would be more harmonious with just one. Second when people mix these mosses in their tanks it is almost impossible for a clean culture to be passed on to a different aquarist and the types become mixed.

The V nana on the left is growing too clse to the front. I cover that section and the whole layout changes inmediatly! enhancing the mound and making the foreground stronger.
The layout have a feel of tranquility but the rocks are bright and this make me keep looking at them.
The layout is there and is looking good! perhaps a few changes will make it look better.
