#514: 182L Aquatic Garden Fractal Earth

Gu jung-min Jeonju, South Korea


The chunky wood in this scape darks out way too much of the aquascape.

I really like this tank and I love the explanation about the atmosphere and the title of the tank. I am a great lover of "theme and story" tanks and this one has something that really makes me like it!!!

Additional Information The first thing I thought about in aquascape was to divide the zones by color.
Red water plants are used to express the sun on the upper floor, blue colored stones are used on the lower floor to represent the sea, and green colors, which account for a large proportion of the entire mountain and forest colors, are used to connect the upper and lower floors in harmony.

It occurred to me that the aquascape expressed in a small tank resembled a piece of nature, a microcosm of the earth, and a fractal structure of the earth. It is small, but this place is also Earth.
The road is divided into dark and sunny places. It is a path that expresses two conflicting characteristics that create all things in heaven and earth.
This is also a component that makes up the Earth.
