This Dutch Style Tank (that fits the rather strict definition as set up by the Dutch Society for Aquarists NBAT) exhibits a variety of aquatic plant forms and textures. Framing the top left of the tank is large bush of Rotala ceylon with fine reddish leaves, and at its foot, the green oval  leaves of Lobelia cardinalis provide a dramatic contrast.

Moving right, our eyes are drawn to the distinctive dark-red mass of Ludwigia sp. red which has grown into a wavy bush. In the center foreground, the grassy bushes of Blyxa japonica contrast with the tall red stems of Myriophyllum mattogrossense 'Red' that tower above.  To the immediate right of the Myriophyllum we see the fine, pink bush of Ludwigia arcuata. A thick growth of deep-red Alternanthera reineckii 'mini' anchors the right foreground.
