The choice of only 4 different plants gives the aquarium an incredibly consistent, simple and harmonious image. The soft, calm lawn by Eleocharis 'Mini' (that stays low and does not require mowing) accentuates the forms and colours of Myriophyllum, Rotala sp. bonsai and Hydrocotyle, just like the merging in the colour tone of the fine-leafed, warm orange red Myriophyllum and the terminals on Rotala are very effective. Upright dragon rocks stop the fall from the right towards to the left for a short moment and allow the eye to linger on the details of each plant.

Tip! Please notice the diversity of especially the red-coloured plants. There are warm and cold shades with tones of e.g. orange, brown or purple. Choose red plants that harmonize in either the cold, minor undertone or the warm orange.

Note: Plant A on the drawing is Myriophyllum tuberculatum which is no longer produced by Tropica. Can ce replaced by another red stem plant.
