#178: 96L Aquatic Garden Fairy Tale of Vegetation

Andras Tundik Budapest, Hungary


Good use of plants a well maintained aquarium but the left background side is too weak comparing with the whole work.
— Luca Galarraga
I like the slope but the stem plants on the left have been trimmed hard and not given time to grow out into natural shapes.
