A pure and cultured landscape with everything in the right spot. Light and friendly. The very light-green general impression from Ceratopteris, Rotala, Hydrocotyle and Nymphoides is broken by the red Echinodorus, the orange Nesaea and the orange-green pinnatifida. Under the pinnatifida, the 'Christmas'-moss grows. To the right, the 'Spiky'-moss forms a dark, somewhat mysterious surface - and at the same time covers the filter! Pinnatifida and Staurogyne are both regularly nipped to further a low and compact growth. Rotala is kept low like a valley in the background. Keep the rock pieces visible between the plant groups.

Schooling fish are an obvious choice for the aquarium - as an example the Red Nose Tetra (Hemigrammus bleheri, approximately 15 fish.).

Tips! Keep an area free up against the front screen, so that offshoots from Staurogyne, pinnatifida and Hydrocotyle are free to peep out and be visible.
