#156: 34L Aquatic Garden Full of life

Andre Luiz Longarço Sao Paulo, Brazil

Comments

A lovely little aquascape that uses fine textures and small fish to enhance the sense of scale very effectively. I actually prefer the riccia when it isn't pearling, as it looks too dominating otherwise and I feel the left hand Rotala could have benefited from more pruning/re-growth. These are minor details that do little to detract from a very commendable layout. Very well done!

Beautiful, vibrant tank woth a lot going on. There are pleasing leading lines and good basic structure in the rockwork. The perfect setting for these brilliant miniature fish!

This tank offers a very pleasing sense of visual depth. The layering of the plant groups makes good gardening sense, whether under water or outdoors.
If the rocks had been more boldly placed, this scene would have been more satisfying.
