#333: 20L Aquatic Garden Green island

Jarosław Hnat Nysa, Poland


I like the idea of a large cliff in this scape but the two pieces of wood sticking out of the cliff are a little odd looking.
— Kris Weinhold
Good layout a little dark on the right side and the stem plants in the back need more presence or maybe just leave them out.
— Luis Navarro
Nice healthy looking tank. The Rotala needs to be pruned and shaped to provide structure to the right side. The large stem unfortunately stands out too much and detracts from the effect. Nice tank.

Pretty but the R. wallichii needs to fill in more and the hard scape is a bit overpowering..
