#374: 500L Dutch Aquascape Calypso

Maria José Suarez Valencia, Spain


I think an ATTEMPT was made at a Dutch style tank here but the plants have not been nicely trimmed to hide the long stems and the aquarist has not attempted to make any "streets" which would provide needed depth in the aquascape. Also the back and sides of the tank must be covered with plants.

Even after looking at it a few times I am not sure if this was just meant as a first attempt at Dutch Style or if it was just put into a wrong category.

In any case more species of plants and less different types of decoration materials are needed to make it more successful.
