#578: 88L Aquatic Garden Breath of the wild

Ahmad Syakir Solo, Indonesia


I quite like your very old-school nature aquarium scape. Your use of wood and the mid ground and ground plantings are lovely. I love the finish work you've done on your sand. Then... Unfortunately you let what should have been a lovely pink accent the Rotala get completely out of control growing right to the surface and creating harsh shadows behind that lovely mid-ground planting. This is one of those cases where you should have taken a series of photos at different times as that Rotala grew out and was trimmed back. I think you would have seen that the "sweet spot" was probably a couple of weeks (or maybe only a week?) before this!
