#73: 370L Aquatic Garden Tai Chi

Miao Dongliang Suzhou, China


Very nice tank with pleasing lines. Well maintained with good trimming technique obvious.
— Karen Randall
Excellent layout with great variation in textures. If anything the Java fern is a little too dominating and the glosso looks too immature. But these are minor drawbacks from an otherwise superb aquascape. Well done.
— George Farmer
This aquascape successfully presents a good sense of time passage. However since Microsorium is growing too densely it gives the viewers visually a feeling of pressure. In this case giving the plants a drastic trimming will result in a nice outcome. The distribution of the stemmed plants are concentrated on the right side. They should be arranged evenly over the layout.
