#61: 65L Aquatic Garden Green Path

Chan Yuk Lun, Alan Hee Wong Terrace, Hong Kong

Comments

Well exectuted and presented layout with good use of textures and hardcape. The right-hand tree is a little distracting right in the corner and the Punitus denisoni are unsuitable for small aquaria.
— George Farmer
You have obviously put a lot of effort into this tank, but I find your driftwood to be quite blocky and harsh. While you were careful to place your path on a third, it would work better if it were slanting, curved or both, rather than a straight line cutting the tank in two pieces. A 17G tank is much too small for a group of fish like P. denisoni, which will eventually reach 6" with good care.

In the right hands, even an ugly ole tree stump can be made beautiful...and compelling. That loop of a branch at center grabs my eye and won't let go. That is what a focal point is all about.
The rest of the aquascape, when I finally look away from the branch, displays a skillful command of design balance and simplicity.

The composition of the dynamically arranged driftwood is exciting. However, the center of the composition seems too far right. If the entire scene had been shifted a little more to the left, the balance of the composition would look pleasant.
