YOU ARE A LIAR! NO WAY THIS IS YOUR FIRST PLANTED TANK!

Fabulous and stunning! I assume you had good source of advice from your friends that keep planted tanks? Also, that's a very cool canopy for your lighting.....makes it look like a "greenhouse"!

Keep up the great work, and WELCOME TO APC!!

That is a beautiful garden.
I can't imagine the trimming to make it look like that. Very well worth the effort. You should place high in the contest. GOOD LUCK!
You converted me, I'm going Dutch.

As a Dutch friend of mine is fond of saying,

If you're not Dutch, you're not much!

Beautiful tank!

Magnifique!!!

I disagree that this is a classical dutch-style tank. They traditionally make use of only a few red plants and a tank this size would usually have maybe 20 or 30 species. Despite this, your tank is fabulous. The health of the plants is evident.

I'd never have the time or patience to keep that many stemmies trimmed appropriately. My 180g tank is only about 1/2 stem plants and demands huge quantities of time to keep trimmed.

Please share your fertilization routine. I'm guessing your nitrate levels are pretty low.

Dutch would also require using 'streets' of plants, where you use one species that starts at the foreground and ends at the background (diagonally).

But this tank is beautiful nonetheless! I congratulate you on managing to keep 80 species, of what is mostly stem plants, in a nice ordered fashion. I like it, very vibrant! Magnifique indeed.

Very nice! And pretty brave to use a 222g (!) for your first planted tank!
