Tse Yin Ki Hong Kong, Hong Kong

Awards and Comments


I like your creative use of the ropes but not the unnatural look of their T. usneoides 'dressings. Additionally I don't see the T. usneoides mentioned in the materials list. I also find lights shining from the bottom to be 'overly' unnatural.
— Cory Nudelman
This setup is extremely unique and well executed. The sense of scale selection of plants and innovative techniques are really interesting.
— Tanner Serpa
Not a paludarium
— Karen Randall
Agree with Karen on this one. I consider this more of an aquascape with hardscape extending out of the aquarium. Not truly a paludarium.
— Bailin Shaw
