#95: 144L Aquatic Garden Dragon's Cave

Carl Stenbratt Vallda, Sweden


Fantastic composition in a difficult vertically shaped tank. Excellent job!
— Karen Randall
Interesting concept for this tank. I like the use of the cyperus on the right but the left bunch doesn't fit into the overall flow of the aquascape. A little more selective pruning of the plants and you'll be in good shape.
— Bailin Shaw
Very ominous feel to this one. I really love the tension created here. The plant selection is a nice compliment to the "evilness" of the rocks.

I would like to see the layout without the grouping of the plants on the far left.
