The large old tree at the edge of the wood leaning over the open meadow and the light playing and breaking in the tree crown (Bolbitis). The tree crown creates areas of flickering shadows and there is Cardamine in light openings for a fresh green background. Cryptocoryne is planted in the shadow areas. Moss on branches gives the tree an air of richness and antiquity. Behind the tree, Rotala creates a falling line. The corner filter is partially camouflaged by Fissidens on a suspended root. The many plants in the aquarium are in good balance - tenellus and stem plants require regular trimming.

Tips! The location of Bolbitis near the water surface/light source creates splendid effects in the aquarium when the water flow moves the leaves of the Bolbitis and light and shadows form waves in the tenellus carpet.

Note: Plant C on the drawing is Cryptocoryne wendtii 'Mi Oya' which is no longer produced by Tropica. Can be replaced by Cryptocoryne wendtii 'Tropica'.
