#135: 96L Aquatic Garden

Grzegorz Pikuła Tychy, Poland


Very nice layout. While Alternanthera is a striking plant it is hard to use in the aquascape as it tends to look a little harsh and coarse as it does here. Try replacing it with something a little more subtle and I think your layout will be even stronger.
— Karen Randall
The eleocharis section makes the rest of the tank feel messy. The alternanthera stands out a bit much and seems to be swallowed up by the other plants. The Didiplis and rotundifolia are well groomed and compliment each other well in this scape.
