Aquascape of the Week: Luis Carlos Galarraga's Colorful Island

It took a lot of self control not to pick one of the fantastic entries from the 2008 ADA contest, but I figured since I just featured them and all of you probably drooled over them enough already, it was time for something new. This aquascape comes from the 2008 AGA (not to be confused with ADA) Aquascaping contest and is the work of Luis Carlos Galarraga from Brazil. This layout is a classic "mound" layout and the colors are beautiful. The different shades of green and red and gold come together to form what looks almost like a bouquet of flowers. The Harlequin Rasboras placed perfectly over the middle of the mound add depth and interest. The whole aquascape leans more towards the Dutch style, with its use of vivid colors and textures, but maintains a Nature style base. For more specific info on the aquascape, including tank size, lighting, and plants, check out the entry page on AGA.
