A wall layout that displays a clear contrast between light and dark by arranging driftwood boldly
Although a Wabi-Kusa Wall allows you to grow emersed mosses and aquatic plants that are attached to a mat easily, the wall tends to appear flat by itself, and it is difficult to bring out the originality in a layout. In this layout, uniquely shaped driftwood was arranged dynamically to create light and dark areas and provides the originality to the layout. The driftwood was also arranged in such a manner that water can run down from the cascade section gradually over the moss on the surface. The water trickles down the driftwood to create a movement in the layout. The trickling water shows up better in a dark area.

The use of driftwood and aquatic plants to create a light and dark contrast and make the most of the characteristics of an aquarium
This layout was produced using Neo Glass Terra (H36) and Wabi-Kusa Wall 60. It is a layout with an unrestrained atmosphere with a bold driftwood arrangement produced by making the most of the characteristics of the open top setup. The pendant style lighting system Solar RGB made it possible to produce this layout. The use of the strong light suitable for aquatic plants enabled the expression of the light and dark contrast as intended.
A dark area was produced intentionally in the center of the layout in the shade of a larger piece of driftwood. The water running down the driftwood over the moss gives movement to the layout.
③ Heliophytic stem plants were planted in the light area. The red stem plant in the Ludwigia family has a strong presence even with emersed grown leaves.
