#317: 182.2L Dutch Aquascape Departure for Adventure



My first impression: Recognizable as a Dutch Style tank but the water is not completely clear and the interior is a bit messy especially in the middle of the tank..
This aquarium is too small for two large solitary plants such as the red Lotus and the Barclaya.
19 different species of plants including some large specimens is a lot for an aquarium of this size.
This aquarium would look much calmer with fewer plant species and larger groups.
Technology well hidden and out of sight.

Water looks hazy and cloudy. Tank looks recently worked on and hasn't had a chance to settle yet. Plant groups need clearer definition and contrast. And once again red plants in the middle in yet another tank - did I miss a memo about this? Lots of rare plants but there are simply too many varieties for a small like.

So many red plants are used that it is hard to see where one group ends and another starts.
