Dutch Aquascape Tank Build At Hakkai Aquascape Design Gallery
We've done our fair share of planted tanks and tried to fiddle with different aquascape styles ranging from Iwagumi to Nature Aquarium and have done many fusion tanks and have even mixed Dutch style with Nature Aquarium. But we have never done a pure Dutch style aquascape and wanted to go with something leaning more towards what a purist would consider a true Dutch Aquascape.
We picked an UNS 60U 20 gallon rimless tank and are running the full spectrum high light UNS Titan 1 Planted Tank LED and opted with the original ADA Amazonia Aqua Soil for longetivity as Dutch tanks are highly demanding and require sufficient nutrients along with strong lighting. CO2 is also being directly injected and we opted with the UNS Dual Stage Mini Regulator and went with the durable and nearly unbreakable Aquario Neo Extendable CO2 Diffuser.
This tank was curated and scaped hands-on by just about the entire team as we all got our hands wet and did everything from the initial aquascape rough draft sketch to
Since stems are prominent in the tank and cover everything from mid to background areas, we went with some Rotalas, Bacopas, S. Repens, Dwarf Baby Tears, just to name some aquatic plants.
We're excited to work on a pure Dutch tank that isn't a hybrid aquascape that we normally do at our local fish store. Come check out our Dutch Aquascape once our doors are open here at Hakkai Aquascape Gallery in Liberty Station, San Diego, CA.
