#160: 71L Aquatic Garden Without Foundation

G. James Maslin Bridgend, United Kingdom


Lush healthy growth but the composition is very static with straight horizontal lines and little variation in form or color. This type of planting can work but only with very strong rock work.
— Karen Randall
Nice lush growth. The fish are a nice contrast to the green.

The rocks lack strength and layout lacks a strong composition.
— Jason Baliban
Lush healthy tank. A lot of pruning and creating two lines in the tank will help the uniformity of the tank.
— Bailin Shaw
