#134: 20L Paludarium A corner of rivulet

Lui Chi Keung Hong Kong SAR, China


Pretty little tank. Your emersed plants are lovely though I think the Bromeliad is a bit overpowering in this small display. Your land/water interface is handled nicely. Unfortunately your water area lets you down. The watersprite planlets look like an afterthought... certainly they can't have been here long or they would have taken over the whole tank at this point. Re-think your water plants perhaps going to some smaller Cryptocoryne or Anubias. Of course there are many other small plant options if you have enough light and CO2 down there.
