Planted tank eye candy

By Leonard Ho - Posted Feb 26, 2014 09:00 AM
We haven't blogged eye candy in a while, and we've also neglected freshwater aquariums for too long. Sorry! To multitask, here are videos (one underwater!) of two splendid planted aquariums with diverging aquascaping philosophies.

The first aquarium uses nothing but plants to create its aquascape.  By carefully placing and pruning plants of varying colors and shapes, this aquascaper is able to "paint" an aquarium reminiscent of fine art.

The second aquarium uses plants and a wood and rock hardscape to create a scenery straight out of a Tolkien fantasy novel.  We even get to see the aquascape from a fish's point of view!  Man, we love when technology allows us to view our enclosed aquatic worlds in a totally fresh perspective.
