Project Details

The use of Rotala sp. stem plants in this tank provided vibrant colors along with the Cardinal Tetras and Chili Rasbora. In contrast to the red and yellow hues, narrow Java Fern and Anubias Nana ‘Petite’ were carefully attached to fill multiple gaps of wood for a more natural look. Hairgrass was used as a foreground plant to soften the overall layout thus creating a sweeping forest display.
