#143: 65L Aquatic Garden Paradise Garden

You are clearly good at growing your plants! Try for a little more flowing lines however. The straight horizontal lines between the two "columns" stop the movement of the eye. Also if your Riccia path were narrower at the rear than in the front it would give a better feeling of depth to the layout.

The size of the plants are too big for a small tank!
— Justin Law
The horizontal layering and riccia river feel very contrived. It is a nice attempt at breaking away from the typical white sand river but too much structure can work against you.
