#104: 200L Dutch Aquascape

Haries Fardan Bandung,West Java, Indonesia


I miss a drawing with the plant groups and the numbers to which the plants in the list refer.
My first impression of this aquarium: A colorful whole but plants that form a straight line and little height difference on the surface.
The plant groups to the right of the Alternanthera form too much of a messy whole.
Two groups of Hygrophila difformis. It would be better to have one group and replace the one on the right with something else.
I miss the information about the numbers of fish. There could be at least 8-10 of these species per species. The combination of species is good. I do miss a specific fish on the bottom and on the surface.
The technology could/should be better hidden.

There are a lot of healthy plants here but some glaring and so-easily-corrected mistakes - exposed equipment unnatural sky blue background red plants in the middle and fuzzy photographs. The plants are really healthy! You could have easily removed the equipment for photography and allowed the plants to grow and cover the distracting background. This aquarist clearly knows how to grow plants well and the selection of plants is near perfect. A missed opportunity. More tips here: https://www.aquatic-gardeners.org/Articles/Vin-Dutch/

All the basics are there but it appears like the tank still needs to mature to qualify as a contest worthy tank.
