#586: 79.8L Dutch Aquascape Flowers blooming at night

junsub Kim Siheung-si, Gyeonggi-do, South Korea


First impression is nice. The Ludwigtia inclinata is very much in the middle of the tank. The Cryptocoryne spiralis is very nice situated.
Otocinclus vestitus should be kept in a school at least 8.
Technology well hidden and out of sight.

This appears be the theme this year: small tanks with very healthy and attractive plants…but also too many species and bright red plants right in the middle. Never put a bright red plants in the center - this divides the tank. I love the variation in the height of the foreground plants - well done. The Eriocaulon is a rather weak right curtain while the Crypt spiralis is overwhelming on the left and is better suited to larger tanks. The Hygrophila should have occupied some of the central location held by the red Ludwigia. More tips here: https://www.aquatic-gardeners.org/Articles/Vin-Dutch/

The two red colored plants are not really at the right focus points and the Alternanthera group can hardly be called a real group. Maybe it would be better to replace that with a small brown crypto species.
