    You seemed to have blended the colours extremely well. I would like to see a bigger school of Neons.

    All of your plants look extremely healthy and in an excellent Aquascape.

    It's a one word description "Fantastic"

    The only point is I would add more Cardinals then the blue contrasting colour would highlight your plats even more.

    What are you feeding the shrimps with it looks like a green leaf of ??

    Not much left of the Mulberry leaves. I am sure there are many members who would like to have a set up like you have.

    It only takes a few years +++ to get to that level. Its not as simple as planting a few coloured plants and calling it "A Dutch like"

    Sorry for any confusion.

    nicpapa is a Master of the Dutch Aquascaping it is something that was learnt over the years.

    I would also like to have a tank like that in our home as well, in fact I would like to have an Aquascape at the moment but my age and health do not permit it at all.

    same here except for the health part, I just simply cant afford something of that much value as I only work for minimum wage, "Only" im glad I have a job! :)
    Thankful

    Beautiful aquarium Nicpapa,

    Have you got a plant list? I was wondering about a couple - the grass stuff at the front left - Is the helanthium tennellum (echinodorus tennellus to the old timers :) ) and in the middle of the middle row - it looks a bit like limnophila aromatic or hippodroides (don't know what the difference is between these two) which I think is at the back left. Is it pogostemon stellate or diplis diandra?

    Thanks for posting up this inspiration / tank porn

    All the best

    Paul
