ADA gallery

In this aquascape, bushes of Hygrophila pinnatifida covers a selection of lava rocks. A base of fine white sand provides contrast to the dark, leafy mountains that tower almost vertically above the pearly plains below. This aquascape is from the ADA Gallery in Niigata. On an aesthetic note I find the transition between the stark white sand and dark rock too abrupt - dark rock in nature naturally erodes to give dark colored sand rather than white sand. Smaller rock pieces or coarse dark gravel fragments at the base of the rock could have eased the transition between the 2 elements. In simple aquascapes where only a few elements are used, attention to such subtle details matter. However, this aquascape also demonstrates that a simple layout - with no soil and only a few plant varietals can create a pleasing tank.
