Nature as Teacher of the planted aquarium basis of three
Original: Geroge Farmer compilation: Erich Sia
There are three basic composition can be applied in a natural shape of the aquarium: triangular projections (also referred to as a hill or island-type) and a recess (also referred to as U-shape).These three styles can be used with each other to some extent, in order to create an attractive aquarium landscaping, for example, we can use the depressed and then view the use of convex type main composition in the foreground.
Use the triangle is an effective way to make plants, hardscape and contrast to produce the bed.If the viewing angle is more than one side of the aquarium, please remember to use this way, and plants, hardscape and the bed placed in the appropriate position.When viewing from the front of the aquarium, plants and hardscape gradually reduced from the higher side to the other side.In the foreground of the bed must be shallow and then deeper territory.When the aquarium viewing from the front, create the illusion of deep out.When the aquarium to watch from the side, the lower part of the bed should be planted prospect prospects dwarf plants, then the higher part of the bed of the King should grow higher plants background.Do not only create a great depth perception Moreover, after two effects combine with each other is also very coordinated.
Common natural landscape: Triangle.
In 2007 ADA planted aquarium first contest is triangular aquarium landscaping masterpiece.
This is the setting of the most challenging way to create the desired effects.Aquascaping is placed through the center of driftwood in the aquarium, rocks and tall weeds in contrast to the line, but not in the very center (will discuss in detail later).Filled with prospects around the plants, and possibly not too much hardscape.High height aquarium quite suitable for this composition, for example, 60x30x45 cm or 90x45x60 cm.
Depressed sets of opposite shape is U-shaped aquarium landscaping, which is the easiest to create and obtain the effect of.Hardscape and plants growing on both sides of the aquarium, the aquarium and the center (by no means is the very center) leaving an open space.To 2: 1, 3: 1 or a way to set the golden ratio open space, the best balance can be obtained.Aquarium longer bar more suitable aquascaping this form, for example, 120x45x45 cm or 180x60x60cm.
Common natural landscape: depressed.

Use of space
Effective use of space for many art forms is very important, for example, such as painting, photography, gardening, landscaping, architecture and interior design.Aquascaping is not the exception, the appropriate use of space is very basic, which enables us to create a balanced and aesthetically very attractive scenery.To give you an example of failure, we imagine an aquarium filled with towering plants close to or touch the surface of the water, and the tall plants throughout the aquarium, so the aquarium may look very unnatural quite boring, our fish only a narrow space, not to mention.Area of open space to create the illusion of depth of field is a must, of course, we have to provide only some of the fish swimming space!Too much space may be very unattractive.Most of us do not feel the plants grow sparse or completely hardscape aquarium interesting or fascinating.The key is to create a balance between full of (positive) and empty (negative).
Common natural landscape: raised type.
In 2007 ADA planted aquarium contest second type is raised with depressed aquarium landscaping masterpiece.
Every successful aquascaping need an ideal focal point.Focus point from a sink to a clump of wood or rock color beautiful plants can.The focal point is the primary decorative elements for the whole aquarium, it must be very carefully placed,
So as to guide visually pleasing attitude to watch aquascaping.Let me give two examples of failures.We imagine two focal points, assuming that there are two bright red clump plants are symmetrically placed around the two corners of the aquarium, bright colors very quickly back and forth will guide the viewers visual uncertainty around, resulting in a very a sense of incongruity.For this reason, the symmetrical approach is very suitable for use in landscaping aquarium, and we should only adopt a strong focal point, unless really big aquarium, and is usually longer than 150 centimeters.
Through the golden ratio to find the focal point, a great help for landscaping.
Or, more simply, a small space for a large proportion of the space, and a large proportion of the overall space of the space is the same.We can use this to their advantage proportions set our focal point, especially if we are not gifted for design time (like me!).
For many aquarium landscaping are concerned, the use of the golden ratio can be said to have reached a natural purpose.Assuming an empty aquarium, only the bottom sand and driftwood or a rock, you think about where to put this to rest on the hope you will not be placed right at the center of impartial.You should be placed in a place slightly to the left or right, so as to provide a more attractive aesthetic perception.
Using the ratio of gold to place the focus point
Using the golden ratio to find potential focal point is a skill, we will aquarium length and height are multiplied by 0.618.Figures obtained from left to right and from right to left, top to bottom and from the bottom, the cross line drawn for each of the measurements, we would obtain a trellis diagram and four cross point, these It is the point where we might focus.
For the aquarium for a 90x45x45cm, 90cm x 0.618 = 55.6cm from left to right and from right to left; 45cm x 0.618 = 27.8cm from top to bottom and bottom to top have.
Not only crossing point told us to place our focus point where the horizontal and vertical lines can also be utilized.Both sides of the line are able to place our positive or negative space.Can be used to create a horizontal plane, for example, the intersection of the upper edge profile of plants, or the open end of the body of water with sand.
Strictly follow the golden ratio is not needed, this is just a guideline only.Many of the aquascaping who deliberately placed outside the focal point deviation from the visual center of the place, as if for the scenery can create a feeling of tension and fun as.Just as everything in our lives, like, practice the more it will get better, and I hope accumulated some experience in the future, how to place the focal point should become second nature (this is not wisecrack!).
