Dutch style planted aquarium

Buzzdar

A little outdated i since have removed the dwarf sag and majority of hydrocotyle. I extended the pearlweed all the way across the front and added more ludwigia where the dwarf sag was for a more coherent look. There are crypts in mid ground behind the pearlweed but theyre still small and staying very compact right under the light. Im hoping for them to to get much larger but well see. Feel free to drop a critique

Beautiful planting. Those red swordtails are striking too! Very nice.

Lush green and sword tails pop! Very nice and simple. Is that wood extending outside of tank?

I took some of those plastic shower curtain rings and used fishing line to hang that piece of driftwood there.

That is lovely! Sorry not sorry: nothing to critique. Lol.

That’s really clever too having the wood suspended above and only partially in the water.

Er yeah its actually all submerged but i get what you mean. I wanted it up off the substrate and it also kinda baffles the filter. I am now working on buce-ing it up. :).

Here’s a little update of where the tank is today. Once the right side fills out i can work on manicuring the carpet a bit more. Very satisfied with everything so far!
