David Pierce, owner of Aquarium Gardens in England, has created this 'Slow Burner' aquarium as a realistic inspiration for beginners in the hobby.

“We created this simple Non-CO2 Aquascape in our showroom using only plants from Tropica's 'Easy' selection plants. As long as you follow some simple guidelines and advice, it is achievable to create a high impact scape no matter how advanced you are.”

"A good entry point to the hobby is a simple undemanding Aquascape that's easy to care for. The key to success here is sticking to lower levels of light and choosing 'Easy' plants."
