This a classic nature style aquascape that blends wood and plants gracefully. The contrast of shadows and lighted areas gives one the feeling of entering a dark, peaceful forest. Lush greens contrast with dark woods, dark substrate and a dim background to create this effect. The scale of fish matches the setting well, visible yet not so large as to dwarf the aquascape. The outward stretching lines of Cyperus helferi in the background mirror the outward pointing wood used in this aquascape to give a sense of flow to the tank. This tank uses slow growing plants that are suitable for tanks without injected CO2.
