#478: 360L Aquatic Garden Closure

Jiří Pova Praha, Czech Republic


Iwagumi style aquariums are stunning. Its delicacy and simplicity captivate observers. But to stand out in an aquascaping competition the hardscape work must be practically impeccable.
The rocks lacked power and appropriate scale.
Oyaishi is well positioned but the fukuseki almost disappears among the plants and the complementary ones are not subordinate to the other rocks. Try to study a little more about the iwagumis and the criteria for subordination between the rocks.
The carpet would also be better if it was mixed and not so straight with one specie only you need to let Nature settle.
Your work reminded me a lot of my master the Mr. Takashi Amano. He's certainly as proud as I am of your work!
Keep it up!
