Dramatic, upright dragon rocks in a calm, flat landscape of tenellus, Staurogyne and Hydrocotyle form the two classical islands with small details and the ravine in between. Hydrocotyle creates a light green glacier on one of them, while pinnatifida towers over the other. The mixture of red purple Aponogeton, Ludwgia and Hygrophila araguaia with fresh green Heteranthera and Rotala green beautifully accentuates both colours. Soft moss, Weeping and Christmas, soften up the somewhat sharp branches. The aquarium radiates peace and plenty of space.

Tip! The adequate amount of light (here approx. 1 watt per litre) gives the plants the opportunity to develop in the best way. This can clearly be seen in the beuatiful, compact growth and the intense development in the colours.

Note: Plant A on the drawing is Aponogeton crispus 'Red', which is no longer produced by Tropica. It can be replaced by Cryptocoryne Usteriana.
