Everyone who sees a skillfully planted aquarium falls under its spell: it's like looking at a tropical forest, an enchanted meadow, or a miniature mountain range. Sunken Gardens shows you how to plan, design, plant, and maintain a beautiful, thriving aquascape. From technical matters such as carbon dioxide supplementation and fertilization to the aesthetics of combining plants, rocks, and wood, Karen Randall – one of the world's foremost experts on planted freshwater aquariums – takes the mystery out of underwater gardening and opens its pleasures to both novices and experienced aquarists.
Filled with illuminating step-by-step photos and enriched with detailed portraits of some of the best aquatic plants, fish, and invertebrates, Sunken Gardens is the essential guide to this fascinating pastime.
