#118: 160L Aquatic Garden Route to Wilderness

dan Crawford Daventry, England


Very nice use of your diagonal path. It really draws the eye into your aquascape. I lke your wood and the fact that the smaller piuece on the right echoes the shape of the left hand piece. I wish the taller plants in the back corners were a little less messy. Perhaps go with either tall narrow leaf plants OR stems rather than a mixture of both.

Superb design and composition! The variety of textures work very well together and the open path looks excellent with the mix of substrate grain types. Nice fish selection too. Very well done!
