#85: 170L Aquatic Garden A Certain Shade of Green

Steven Michael Coyle Bowie, United States


Good start but the plants need to grow in more. Also make sure to trim the Rotala and Hydrocotyle so that it doesn't get wild and leggy.
— Kris Weinhold
Good start to the tank. The driftwood needs to be tilted on its side or tilted toward the back so it's not so vertical in the tank. The height of the Rotala near the driftwood also should be shorted by pruning and allowing the plants to thicken to define a part of the tank. Keep it up!
