#36: 170L Aquatic Garden Angel's Garden

Genaro Hiram Mendoza Zavala Apatzingan, Mexico


Vibrant and healthy looking but the arrangement of plants is too blocky. Try to create more variation in the size and placement of your plant groups so that you don't end up with rows od species side by side.
— Karen Randall
Healthy and colorful tank. Shape the plants a bit more to triangulate the design of the tank. The angelfish also seem too large for this tank. Good start!
