This vibrant 'Dutch Style' tank goes with a more naturalistic feel than the strict definition of a Dutch Style Tank, with the close intermingling of the varied species. The traditional rules set up by the Dutch Society for Aquarists (NBAT) were pretty strict: for instance it dictates the use of no more than 1 plant species per 10cm/4 inches of tank tank, with no duplication of same species in another group. NBAT rules also imply that a shoal of fish should consist of at least 12 fishes from the same species. While not meeting the strict Dutch Style Tank criteria, this aquascape is nevertheless a joy to behold.
