#188: 200L Aquatic Garden clouded field

Mustafa Erdogar Istanbul, Turkey


Very clean simple attractive layout well executed. I'd prefer that the pebbles in front were a little darker as the bright white pulls the eye away from your lovely planting.
— Karen Randall
An effective elongated triangular layout that uses driftwood and rocks to good effect. The small white stones on the black substrate is a bold move but I like it. Some more transition from the broad fern leaves to the fine Blyxa and Lilaeopsis would have to good to see. Good job!
