#611: 160L Dutch Aquascape Old and wild river's root

Fabio Rasa Grugliasco, Italy


Dutch Style is not known for the use of massive pieces of rock or wood. However one could argue in this case that the wood is used as a "street" to bring more sense of depth and variation in color and height.

If one would go from that assumption I would put big portions of moss on the higher parts of the wood and also put bigger groups of plants on the right side.

I would however not push this contestant toward Dutch Style per se as I personally really like this layout for many other reasons.

A really pretty aquarium with healthy plants.

This tank possesses a relaxed and calming feel that many of the higher ranked tanks in this contest do not. However this is not a true Dutch style aquascape which are never built around a large piece of driftwood.

Congrats on growing Ammannia pedicellata so well.
