#176: 135L Aquatic Garden Made in the shade

Sylvain Van Waerebeke Argenteuil, France


Lovely tank. Beautiful form; well chosen well placed hardscape and very nice choice of plants and fish. Really nicely done!
— Karen Randall
Very nice low-light and low-maintenance layout. I feel the strong rockwork would benefit from some stronger use of wood for balance. The black hole in the centre of the aquascape would benefit from some more rocks and/or planting - Anubias perhaps? Overall it's well done.
— George Farmer
A beautifully composed aquascape.
The "naturalness" of this photo entry might have benefitted if the mosses and Bolbitis had been allowed to grow out more especially in the left side. That's a minor complaint in an otherwise artful display.
