#56: 151L Aquatic Garden Passion

Roy H. Deki Chandler, United States


Pretty tank but I am not sure I like the B. aubertii used in this position. Too bad there was a bit of haze in your water on the day the photo was taken too.

This is a very "safe" scape (I've done this myself). Everything is done with the plants in well defined groups. You have a traditional 2 mount scape drawing you to what could have been a potentially empty valley (marred by a chunk of wood) with hardscape material placed in a way that looks "just because I needed some wood and rock". With the exception of the valley the hardscape isn't offensive but it isn't adding. Try using a bit more rock and (smaller) wood integrating it within your plants. Also play with sloping the substrate higher in the back and lower in the front and also lower to the focal valley.
