Some aquarium hobbyists spend a considerable amount of time drawing up their aquarium design before beginning the actual aquascaping process. In addition to layout, aquarists should also consider filtration, lighting, algae growth, proportion, as well as the appropriate shrimp and fish species as they design their aquascaping tank.
