    Great colors with the Eusteralis and textures with the HC foreground. The scape looks great, but something feels off balanced when looking at the frontal pictures. It could be a combination of the left side plants being one dimensional compared to the rest of the plants, and the dark hole in to the right. On the other hand, when you look at the angled shot in post #5 everthing looks well shaped.

    In any event, it's still a well designed and executed dutch scape. I love seeing these types of tanks. What does the 212 in your thread title refer to?

    No doubt it's well planted tank in Dutch style but without a focal point. Therefore, as John already mentioned, instead of dark hole it would be appreciated to have some kind of focal point in that place.

    Second, PS is mighty tool but for my taste, there is a lot of red color in order to emphasize intensive coloration of some red plants... It also can be seen at your rasboras as well as on red plants... Would be appreciated if you could provide us real coloration of your tank...

    Third, try to hide your spray-bar at the background.

    Fourth, would be much better to have foreground fulfilled with HC, as there is a irritating empty space on the right side...

    Hope some new update will be available soon... :)

    Fifth, your tank could look awesome with the above mentioned minor changes...

    In addition, will be great if you could give us some details regarding the soil, water chemistry, etc...

    rgds,

    I think one thing that happens in a dutch scape are holes. Holes in between areas of undergrowth or the presence of a peice of hardscape that's just in the way. I personally enjoy imperfections and unexpected occurances in my tanks that don't compromise the scape. Who says a dark spot can't be a focal point? In your case theres a dark area that, to me, looks great for the reason that you can't just guess whats hiding in there. And being overshadowed by that devilishly red umbrella. Overall, I think the left side is definitely less defined than the right, giving that washed out appearance, not as clear of lines between plants. Forground texture is real nice. IMO a great looking tank. Great job!

    PPS-PRO involves also MgSO4 and K2SO4. Why did you discard that?

    MgSO4 and K2SO4 are only essential if the tab water is soft. Its possible thats why.
