If it weren’t for the tiny fish swimming around, one would think these gorgeous designs are huge real-life underwater landscapes. The aquascapes mimic small pine forests, zen gardens, canyons and desert environments. Looking at the sloping bare terrain of one tank scattered with cactus plants, you can almost feel the scorching desert sun. Another aquarium looks like an enchanted forest from Grimms’ fairy tales, with intertwining roots and looming branches.
