#318: 429L Dutch Aquascape A passion for dutch

zapartan Flaviu Cluj-Napoca, Romania


Plants look great. The composition still needs a bit of work since the aquascape now on first sight looks to be split in 2 sections: left with streets right more groups. More variation of those all over the scape would make it look more like 1 aquascape.
— Marco Aukes
This is another good try. In this case the maker has worked hard to get those nice planted “streets” but has allowed them to get overgrown and lose definition. And again the red is overdone.
— Karen Randall
