#341: 110L Aquatic Garden The Snail

Steven Waldron Seattle, United States


Nice use of moss on the wood to create a very lush aquascape.
— Kris Weinhold
Aptly named layout. I can certainly envision the snout of the snail and its shell. Good job creating the snail. The Hydrocotyle could be developed more for the tank and the moss needs a nice pruning to "tighten" up the aquascape. Fun tank!
