#316: 32L Aquatic Garden

Jordan Stirrat Dumfries, Scotland


Very strong hardscape but this is a great example that the aquascaper took a lot of care with the hardscape job and forgot to think about plants.
Although the proportion of this tank cause the effect that it seems a big aquarium with 120cm for example but it is not. This technique is very good to cause this impression but it demands that plants and hardscape are in the same proportions to make this effect real.
There are too many rocks and too few spaces to plant. The foreground is too tight and the background is too aligned.
Just one more thing... where are the fish?
Keep aquascaping because you have the skills but just contemplate more Nature and don't forget: Less is more.
