#322: 180L Aquatic Garden The secret path

Papanikolas Nikos Kremasti - Rhodes, Greece


Beautifully planted and trimmed aquascape. The wood is a bit too bare and perhaps some pieces could be removed entirely.

This is a tank where I feel that the hardscape hurts the entire effect. While the planting is lovely and beautifully maintained the placement and size of wood used is a hindrance. Particularly the heavy center branches that break the water surface. They visually divide that tank as well as taking the eye up and out of the aquascape. The shame is that with just a little bit of tweaking this could be one of my favorite tanks!

Very pretty tank! The hardscape and plants are well done and the color of the Ludiwgia provides some nice color to the aquascape. The textures of the plants have been mixed nicely especially in the foreground and mid ground. My only complaint are the two larger piece of driftwood sticking out of the plants that clash with the rest of the tank. Great job!
