#200: 76L Aquatic Garden Serenity

Jason Politte Conway, United States


You've created a lovely foreground and have the right idea in creating you mid-ground hardscape. But the background planting is a bit chaotic and the plant choices are a little coarse looking in this size tank. That said if this is your first planted tank you are doing exactly the right thing working with plants that grow well for you!
— Karen Randall
Very nice for a first effort. Also the hardscape is composed well for a first go.
— Jason Baliban
Good start to the aquascape. Move the Ludwigia to the left corner and shape it by pruning it multiple times. Good luck with the continued success of the tank!
