#159: 53L Aquatic Garden Dark Cliff

Marcelo Takeno São Bernardo do Campo, Brazil


I like the hardscape work in this tank. Unfortunately the planting seems to be a little bit all over the place. For example why have H. pinnatifida on the left mountain and Pogostemon helferi on the right? The trimming of the plants should be done to better guide the eye from mid-ground to background on the sides. A lot of potential here with a bit more discipline.

Interesting layout with very strong hardscape with defined priorities and good shadows.
Foreground is very well worked and dynamic a rare fact in aquariums with less volume. However what is out of tune in this work is the choice position and condition of the plants.
The plants on the rocks are badly positioned and the thickening of the bushes could be better.
However it is a good job that if it had more time of maturation certanly it would result in a photo much better.
Congratulations keep working.
