#418: 1000L Dutch Aquascape My Dutch ditch

Bart Laurens Zoetermeer, Netherlands

Awards and Comments

First Place
Dutch Style aquascaping almost to perfection. Great contrasts and variation perfect health in plants and interesting from left to right. And that in an 310cm is a huge achievement to be proud of.
— Marco Aukes
This tank has a lot of red but spread over a much larger area and the red is a counterpoint to the varied green tones and leaf shapes. The plant groupings in front lead the eye further back into the tank just as they should. Lovely tank!
— Karen Randall
