Description: Forest floor, also called detritus is usually lack of sunlight due to the canopy above which block most of the sunlight. End up, forest floor is only filled with leaf litters and dead organic matters. In this aquascape, I'm trying to give light to detritus, allowing new life to sprout. This aquascape is an impression of having new life in the detritus.
