#326: 40L Aquatic Garden Valley of sleeping unicorn

Grzegorz Ziomek Recklinghausen, Germany


Aquarium with great design simple proposal and very well executed.
The nearby volumes with larger floor plans increase the sense of perspective and depth.
In the foreground which was too flat the Marsileia hirsuta was a little big probably the best choice for this case would be the Marsilea angustifolia which is smaller. Still regarding the plants the photo was probably taken too late when the plants had already started to close which was a shame as the health of the montage is evident.
As a last point the choice of fish and their positioning were not happy.
But above all I see a well-mounted healthy aquarium that represents nature a lot my sincere congratulations!!!

This is another case where what started as quite a strong hardscape has been SO over-run by plants that I was actually startled to look at the supporting photos and find that there was so much rock under there! Do not do such beautiful rock work and then let your plants totally take over!

This hardscape is strong take care with the plant choices there exist many plants that love to invade everything and this is one case when plants cover the hardscape you must see. Good job pretty colors.
