Jinan hot spring stream, Shandong, China

China, Shandong, Jinan

Jinan is famous for its spring water. The beautiful city has more than one hundred springs, 72 of which are the most well-known. A series of mountains embrace the city’s southern territories, featuring steep cliffs, cloud and fog, and exotic stones. Within the mountains, some small-sized springs flow day and night.

Impressed by the great views, I decided to design an original fish-tank with Jinan characteristics.
