#130: 64.8L Dutch Aquascape Timeless Grace

Yu Hsuan Huang New Taipei City, Taiwan


Nice decorated small tank
E. kleiner bar grows too big for this small tank
Background Vesicularia is very nice
Slightly too many plant species for this size aquarium. Fewer species would create a calmer atmosphere.
I find the inhabitants of this aquarium very suitable.
Technology well hidden and out of sight.

I love this tank. A real Dutch style aquascape albeit a small one. Good contrast. Great trimming. Pleasant moss wall. Great variety and contrast of leaves. There's a lot here for the other contestants to learn from. I just wish the reddish Rotala was not so close to the center - it feels like a pillar dividing the tank.

Nice and healthy looking layout. However left side with the Echinodorus appears to be off-balanced a bit. The scape also appears to be lacking a bit of maturity.
