12G Long Aquascape by Edward Tang

This tank has really taken off after 8 months of growth. The scape proved challenging due to the long and narrow dimensions of the tank. The aquascaper utilized pieces of Spider Wood and Seiryu Stone to set the framework without distracting from the main focus of the plants. Bucephalandra was planted along the hardscape while a forest of Alternanthera Reineckii Mini acts as the central focal point and backdrop. A field of Micranthemum 'Monte Carlo' is spread throughout the foreground as well as behind parts of the wood, giving stark contrast to the sharp red of the Alternanthera Reineckii Mini. Mini Christmas Moss was attached to the wood branches creating a wild and natural look to the aquascape while providing coverage for baby shrimp.
