Additional Information As the title „Dawn over Flooded Grassland“ suggests, I wanted to create a certain mood with this scape. As the standart ADA 60P is limited in depth, I focused on creating the vastness of a grassland using fine structured plants in the back (ludwigia arcuata and accicularis mini) and bolder plants such as Lagenandra, Echinodorus and the bigger grass type (lilaeopsis brasiliensis) in the front. The orange colour of the background plants provides the desired „dawn“ effect.

However, I wanted to create a scape that has more of a natural aquascape look to it, rather than a classic diorama scape.
