#625: 198L Dutch Aquascape La Plata Dutch

Lester Plata Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates


Key ingredients to Dutch Style: limitation in amount of plant species put good contrast in the colors. 95% red plants does not bring that contrast. I was close to a DQ it is my personal admiration that one brings such a healthy looking and stunning tank to the contest that I did not. It is in the wrong category though.

See my comments made on #626: 128L Dutch Aquascape: Miracle Garden.

Too many species. Too much red.

Fifteen species would be too much for a tank this long...you have 31.

Here are some tips and guidelines for Dutch style aquascapers:
