Very nice! I like the juxtaposition of the delicate leaf shapes with the strong driftwood you've chosen.

Karen Randall

I really like the textures of this layout. The right foreground is very nicely done. I wonder what the layout would have looked like if the wood on the left was angled down into the front corner of the tank?

Jason Baliban

Nice use of wood and rockwork. The wood on the left side coming up and out seems out of place in the tank. A bit more shaping of the plants and this tank will be ever more impressive. Good job.
