    Dutch Style Journal...

    Will be starting a Dutch Style tank. The tank is 48x18x18 in. The light fixture can have two or four 54W T5HO lights on. I will be dosing co2 (of course) and I am using aquasoil. Here's a preview:







    Anyways...a bit overkill on the reactor (lol, I know).

    What are some MUST have plants for Dutch style?

    I am already thinking of replicating my 5g tanks for the foreground



    Need help guys...also, if you have a MUST HAVE plant you can sell me...I'll be happy.

    I like the setup, are those Oddissey lights? Did you made the stand? Too many questions...
    I can't wait to see it planted! Keep updating.

    The whole set up is in a "used" condition. I'm trying to look for a brand name on the lights but I don't see anything. Here are some pictures:



    It does look like an Odyssea light fixture. Perhaps you can confirm.

    I also repainted and reinforced the tank stand. An overkill I did for sure. I added about 4 2x4 and 4 2x6. The stand is solid.



    The stand was giving coats for water protection and then I used semigloss black paint.

    I also added more hinges.

    Not sure again. Here's a picture:



    It looks like Aquasoil.

    It looks great, I have 48" quad Oddissey lights and your lights look definitely better made.

    Is looking great! What is the name of the plant on the left side on the fourth picture from top to bottom, the leaf has a very interesting shape.
