#521: 200L Dutch Aquascape Dutch Touch

Alexandru Lucian Caileanu Craiova, Romania


I have really been struggling if we should accept this entry in this category. The title of the scape says it all; it has touches of Dutch Style but in general misses most typical requirements to be qualified as such.

To start 18 different species is a bit much for typical Dutch style and in general it is missing the big impact contrasts. So less species of plants and more room between the separate groups.

If one would take the contrast impact of the Microsorum; that should be the standard for the rest of the scape.
