#106: 140L Aquatic Garden Valley of the Crypt.

Robert Sewell Orlando, United States


A bright sparkling eye-catching tank. However the stem plants have been so severely trimmed that they do not look natural. Try letting them grow out into a little more graceful natural shapes.

Interesting design with good use of fine textures and bold colours. More visible wood would have been nice and allowing the stem plants to grow/pruned into a 'V' formation would have improved composition. Good work!
— George Farmer
With all those stem plants why was the upper region of the tank so neglected? This layout would have greatly benefitted from some variation in the heights and shapes of the background plant groups.
I enjoy the good health of these plants but in my opinion most aquascapes like most outdoor gardens develope more "gravitas" with the introduction of hardscape.
