Dutch style will have alot of variety of plants and lesser or zero hardscape. The main focus is on the aquatic plants itself while nature aquarium style focuses on the arrangement of rock and wood. Dutch style is kind of like a colorful garden

Looking good there bro!

Have you thought of customizing something to hang your lights? Would look good since you got a rimless tank

Dutch style is mainly for plant "collectors" many different plants in 1 tank. Which overtime may change due to the preferance of the hobbist(like me currently getting rid of my downoi and other foreground plants).

Thank you for the kind comment but hanging of the lights are out for me not strong enough unless I go with the Kessil lights but damn exp need to spend about 1.2k in total for 2 sets.

My cardinals like to jump out of the tank every now & then therefore the lightset actually double as a tank cover also. Else my OC always kpkb say got so many ikan bilis all the time.

Here is what my tank looks like about 3 weeks ago.

what is your tank size and how many sets of evo lights you have ?

I was thinking to get evo lights too but was advise to get T5 instead for my 322 tank as it has a wider spectrum of light to cover the whole tank

My tank is only 3x1.5x1 only 1 set of Evo the other set is Maxspect Glaive for the colour spectrum.

If you are talking about spread then min. 6x T5HO will still be better for a 2ft wide for "Dutch style" tank. But if you are going "natural" can just get x4 T5HO. I just dun like to see my electricity bills go up that's why sticking to LED.

Looking to slowly change to better LED lights like Kessil, AI's Hydra or BML by next year or so.
