#109: 172L Aquatic Garden Forest on the Rock

Kwong King Man Mau Tau Wai Estate, Hong Kong


Excellent use of rocks in this layout. All in all this a very beautiful layout. Nicely done.

If I was to suggest something the wood in the middle while I love the idea might be a little too parallel to the substrate line.
— Jason Baliban
Pretty tank but I think you have too many distracting small rocks in the foreground. also the stark horizontal placement of the driftwood is very static. I'd remove the wood or find nice pieces that can create flowing diagonal lies to keep the eye moving through the scape.

Excellent use of rocks and a good combination of plants to complement the layout. The wood in the front does little to add to the flow in the tank and fewer rocks will open up the front of the aquascape. Good job!
