This lushly planted nature style aquascape has dramatic contrast between lush greenery and shadowed areas. Subtle care has been taken to make sure that the wood sits naturally on the rocks. Awkward connecting areas are covered by plants or shadows while moss softens the blending between plants and hardscape. Shadowed areas not only give more dimensions to an aquascape, but also gives good cover for fish. In this aquascape, a white beach foreground lightens up the look of the tank - it is a good alternative for folks that do not want the hassle of managing a planted carpet. Planted tanks can be made easier by making choices such as this. Constructing such an aquascape often takes more rock and wood than people estimate.
