Your "tree trunk and roots" absolutely make this little scape. It's too bad you couldn't get the HC a little thicker and tighter in growth. And while I like the use of the Hydrocotyle, the Eleocharis seems a little coarse for this tiny tank.

I'm amazed that you were able to pull off such a detailed scape in a one-gallon aquarium! I would move the main root mound to the right slightly, and pull out the Hydrocotyle altogether, as it's a bit too large of a leaf for this size tank.

I love the execution of this design the whole look of the tank is good there is a good distribution of the plants and it was very well planned excellent job!

Luis Navarro

Nice layout and composition for the tank. The use of the smaller "roots" to complement the larger main root is well done. For the plants, a pruning to shape the foreground plants would be ideal. Also, offsetting the main rook to the right would create a better balance in the tank.
