Dutch-ish reprise


Hello planted tanks fans,

Back in Feb this year I started a 30gal build. This and another forum were a huge help. The tank is pretty much filled in now, but I thought i I'd share the details and some pics here. Probably should have started a thread here at TPT at the beginning, but better late then never.

I'll start with the specs and I'll post progression pics shortly (gotta fish them out of my hard drive first).

Rotala sp green
Rotala h'ra

Rotala macrandra
Pogostemon helferi
Hydroctyle Japan

Forna
Black neon tetras
CDP
Otocinclus
Redline rasboras
RCS

Hardware
60x45x45 CADE Opti-clear Tank, stand, poles,

Thank you very much

As you can see, it's been quite a transformation. Just look how much dwarf hg I started with (second photo).
