#88: 340L Aquatic Garden Cathedral

Don Smolev Scarsdale, United States


Your tank looks healthy but lasks a clear focus. The very straight stark pieces of driftwood criss-crossing each other stop the eye from roaming the tank freely.
— Karen Randall
An innovative aquascape that uses wood and various plant textures and colours effectively. The 'untidiness' of the layout suits the overall composition that breaks a few rules to good effect. Well done!
