#140: 28L Aquatic Garden Rain Forest

Tirthankar Chattopadhyay Gurgaon, India


Impressive healthy plant growth but the composition lacks any effective focal point. Some rock or wood would improve things considerably. Also the white suction pad is very distracting. Consider removing equipment cleaning glass etc. prior to photography to enhance the aquascape.

Lovely little tank with a thoughtful layout. Some rockwork or wood might help it make more of a statement. Unfortunately there was a slight haze at the time these photos were taken and the glass is dirty with snails crawling on it. Try to pay attention to those details when you are taking your pictures!
