#585: 182.2L Aquatic Garden Renewal

Ruslan Bazhenov Moscow, Russian Federation


It is clear that you put a tremendous amount of thought planning and effort into your hardscape. Unfortunately you have let your plants take over to such an extent that without your back-up photos it would be impossible to tell really what was going on with the hardscape! Plants are important yes! But don’t let them get away from you! I do love that you caught the pencil fish lined up with the angle of your hardscape. THAT was brilliant!

Additional Information
2 years of inspiration and now congratulations to myself for being part of the aquascape community!
This project was inspired by the old documentary film produced by David Attenboro. The jungles of Latin America. The gigantic tree fallen by the storm and the triumph of the nature which seeks to conquer the freed niche. The moment when the fall leads to the top renewal.
With thanks, R. Bazhenov.
