#86: 24L Aquatic Garden A Different Kind of Shrubbery

Carl Stenbratt Vallda, Sweden

Comments

This appears almost chaotic in its design but overall the effect is pleasing. The large crypt leaves spoil the sense of scale a little, but the other textures and colour work well. I feel this aquascape may also benefit from some more visible rocks or wood.

Very pretty tank, rich with texture. The Cryptocoryne leaves seem a little coarse for this size scape.
