#125: 24L Aquatic Garden Shallow Bay

Carl Stenbratt Vallda, Sweden


Very pretty relaxed and informal design. Your Bacopa and Micranthemum could stand to grow in a little fuller. They will if you trim them a few times!
— Karen Randall
A good start here and a generally nice tank. If it were mine I would transplant the right bacopa to the left and let it fill out more in all directions. I would also let the HC fill out more in density yet keep the height trimmed.
