#115: 81L Aquatic Garden Skoli's Refuge

Edward Dockrill Petersham, Australia


Very pretty delicate aquascape. I particularly like your placement of the Anubias to draw the eye into the layout. I think your stem plants needed a little more time to grow up and fill in for the best presentation of the tank. As it is there is not enough clear definition to the various groupings. Finally it is a very small thing but try to take your photos a little earlier in the evening before the Rotala and Limnophila have closed up for the night. That alone will help fill things in.

The layout is full of stem plants and Riccia spp. I think they should have more density and more color contrast. I don't know if the photography is not showing it or they can benefit from better fertilization.
I think you could get more out of this layout just by trimming.
