#124: 118L Aquatic Garden Tree of life

Luis Carlos Ardid Galarraga São Paulo, Brazil


Very nicely done. Often these "central mound" layouts end up with dark or forgotten corners. You have done a very nice job filling in your ground cover so that it curves gently around the central planting. I also like the fact that you've used plants that not only work well together but will allow this layout to be maintained in its current configuration relatively easily. Beautiful job!

I have to look at the pictures many times before gigving my input. You did ver well and from the plants to the fish my first impression was good but I do have a comment.
The base of the three it doens't complement the top as much as I think it would if the Blyxa and Anubias where placed slightly away from the base enough to enhance the illusion of the "three" Perhaps you did it to highlight the open space? Regardless your tank is vaery nice.

This aquarium is top class in its category! The composition is successful and almost hypnotic. In addition the photo itself (not being evaluated) is really really good. However I seen Blyxas doing better than this and the tank could be tightened up a bit.
