#83: 25L Aquatic Garden Javanese Paradise

Tom Messenger Monks Eleigh, United Kingdom


Very well done! You have controlled the moss better in this layout... The small portion of open sand works well to add depth and the overall composition is excellent. The restrained purple background is better too. ;)

This is another beautiful easy to maintain aquascape that can easily brighten the owner's desk. I'd like to see the Java fern on the right be allowed to grow up a bit more to alleviate the very horizontal line across the tank.

This tank has a nice lushness to it but the hardscape plays too weak a role.
The 'scape would benefit greatly with additional bolder stones. Turn the fern "horizon" into a craggy "ridge".
A focal point which is the heart of any successful aquascape is indistinguishable here.
