James Starr-Marshall has visited Harborough Rocks in Peak District National Park in Derbyshire, England, and has been inspired to depict the robust as well as mobile landscape in the aquarium. The location of the rocks is an attempt to reproduce forms, lines and texture from the natural wonder with the creation of a plateau, from where groups of Hemianthus can droop down. Glossostigma has been selected as the slightly darker, green foreground, and the group of tenellus breaks the carpet plants towards the rock in the background.

Tip! The lighting of the white wall behind the aquarium gives the opportunity to create transitions from a more dark-greyish background at the bottom of the back wall sliding into a lighter grey colour towards the top of the back wall, and in this way the lighting contributes to the reproduction of the natural landscape.
